Working Paper No. 6. Author. Sue Loughlin, November 1999. This paper reviews some of the vast amount of available literature on barriers to women's career progression.
It identifies three key themes, Human Resource Management (HRM); organisational culture and family issues, that affect women's and men's careers differently. Together, these issues provide a launching point that will inform future work in identifying factors salient to the New Zealand situation and the direction this work will take. Note: Publication of the Working Papers Series recognises the value of developmental work in generating policy options. The papers in this series were prepared for the purpose of informing policy development. The views expressed are those of the authors and should not be taken to be the views of the State Services Commission.
