data from questionnaires on this topic enables you to evaluate these perceptions. This
assessment requires you to examine the perceptions that you have of women managers, and
how this may relate to career aspirations and an aspect of your personality, namely, your ‘
feminine’ and ‘masculine’ part of your personality.
“Rather than just exploring sex (male and females), our research also examines how
gender identity (masculinity and femininity in both males and females) may play a role in
aspiring to top management positions, as well as attitudes towards women in
management positions. Why is this study important? Some researchers suggest that a
more balanced membership of males and females on Executive Boards and top
management has a positive effect on an organisation ’s performance. However, as de
Luis-Carnicer et al (2008) argue, the results of such studies have often led to inconclusive
findings on whether this may be the case or not. They propose an ‘optimal’ level/balance,
but this balance may still not be attained because of the ‘glass ceiling’ effect that females
may experience. The glass ceiling relates to attitudes that both males and females have
towards women in management positions. This research explo res some of those attitudes
in relation to levels of aspiration, acceptance and personality (gender identity)”
