Juggling under glass

February 21, 2011

The UK Institute for leadership and management commissioned a study on gender gap in managerial positions. The research among their members found that three quarters of women believe there are barriers preventing them from progressing to the top levels of management, compared with roughly one third of male respondents.

Significant differences were found in ambitions and expectations, since women have less clarity of career direction than men, and lower career ambitions and expectations. Fewer women than men expected to become managers and twice as many women as men did not want to become a manager.

The authors of the study believe, to stop talented women opting out of leadership careers, we need to get away from the male breadwinner career model and make senior leadership roles more appealing to people with family demands.
