Women‐only Management Courses: Are they appropriate in the 1990s?

journal contribution
posted on 2023-08-18, 04:13 authored by Brigid Limerick, Eileen Heywood, Lisa Catherine Ehrich
While the number of women in management hierarchies throughout the world is increasing slowly, they are not reaching top management levels. Women continue to face a variety of pressures, both internal and external to the organizations in which they work. For women to operate at their optimum level of management skill, they need to be encouraged to develop their man agement style within supportive learning cultures, free from the domination of traditional stereotypes of the manager as male. Women‐only management courses provide a positive and supportive environment for the development of women as managers in their own right, and are thus an appropriate and positive response to their underrepresentation at high levels. 1995 Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI)
