The report called A Woman’s Place? also shows a third of the 1,500 womensurveyed believe their organisation still discriminates against women managersin terms of pay policy. Nearly half think women still suffer discrimination when it comes topromotion. Mary Chapman, director-general of the Institute of Management, said,”It’s good news that women are using their training and skills to graspopportunities in management. “But many still perceive unacceptable levels of discrimination in payand promotion. Organisations need to tackle these issues head on with transparentreward and promotion procedures based on ability and achievement.” The research shows women in senior management positions are becomingimportant role models. The number of women who cite their female manager as supportive of theircareer has risen from 16 per cent in 1992 to 26 per cent. However, 35 per centstill list the “old boys’ network” as a career barrier – a drop ofeight per cent since 1992 – and 16 per cent still say they are hindered bysexual discrimination – down from nearly a quarter. Over a quarter cite family commitments as a career barrier. Today’s female managers are confident in their abilities and their value inthe workplace, with 56 per cent aspiring to a board level position, says thereport.
