From a Managerial Perspective, Gender Norms and Their Impacts on Womens Career Advancement

Author(s): Louis Andrzej

Gender stereotypes still persist and are spread through the media, as well as through social, educational, and recreational socialisation, which encourages discrimination against women. This essay makes the case that modern management culture does not critically interact with gender studies' social theories, which could aid in the development of managerial viewpoints that are gender-neutral and focused on affirmative action. The study discusses several gender stereotypes and how they affect women's career advancements from a managerial perspective, engaging with gender studies' critical ideas. The study adds to the body of knowledge by examining the causes of gender stereotypes and how they affect women's career advancements in management. It advances theoretical understanding of three clear conceptual shifts, that is 1) Women and Management 2) Gender and Management 3) Women in Management. The theoretical transition from Women in Management to Women and Management led to progressive conceptual shifts in management literature but gender stereotypes continue to exist in society.
