Abstract

Although the proportion of women entering management has increased greatly in the last two decades, their subsequent promotion into executive positions has not materialized. Explores how management development training may impede women's progress. Examines factors that may hinder women's opportunities to advance into upper management (and, consequently, to contribute to the success of their organizations). Also looks at research on genderissues in the academic classroom and how this literature relates to management development training. Discusses implications and recommendations to consider when training and developing women managers and provides anagenda for further research on potential gender bias in managerial training and development opportunities.
