About the eBook

This book explores the range of challenges faced by women in business and leadership today, identifying how far we need to progress before women in business experience the same level of advancement as men.  <P><P>Including a range of different viewpoints, the book analyses women's position at work from three perspectives: the constraints affecting women's career advancements, gender-specific challenges to women in leadership roles, and women's experiences of undertaking these roles while trying to maintain a work-life balance. By highlighting the specific disadvantages relating to gender, chapters outline the extent of change needed culturally, as well as through policy and attitude, if women are to achieve parity with their male counterparts.<P>Researchers and students of gender in management, leadership and organisation studies will find this a thought provoking read, particularly those studying work-family balance and the future paths to breaking the glass ceiling for women in business. <P>Contributors include: V.
