Women in Management
Current Research Issues Volume II

First Edition
Edited by:

May 2000 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Following on from the successful Women in Management: Current Research Issues, this volume provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of current international research findings pertaining to women in management, reflecting recent global changes and issues.

Like its predecessor, this volume brings together an international group of eminent academics, who review the major contemporary issues facing women in management, as well as the individual, organizational, and governmental consequences of these changes.

Some of the key topics covered in this far-reaching text include:

  • Global perspectives on women in business
  • Career development issues for women managers (including discussions of highflyers, networking, leadership)
  • Race and gender issues for black and ethnic minority managers
  • The future of the glass ceiling
  • A review of the increasingly popular 'management of diversity' approach
  • Masculinity of management issues
  • A look ahead to future organizational and governmental initiatives on women in management

And may other areas of growing concern to management studies.

Women in Management: Current Issues in Research II will be a vital resource for scholars and students in management, business, occupational psychology, industrial sociology, and gender studies. In addition, related work groups such as Personnel, Occupational Management, Management Consultants, and Trainers, as well as Trade Unionists should find this book essential to read.
