Women Leadership in Organizations: Socio-Cultural Determinants

Sunita Singh-Sengupta (Author)
Synopsis In the light of changing socio-political landscape, the primary challenge within the corporation today is, how to reposition work-family so that it is not just perceived as a benefit for the employee, but is also seen as a benefit for the corporation—that is, adding to the ‘bottom line’ of business. The cultural values attached with the social role of a woman significantly affect her career choice. Conventionally managerial jobs have defined as largely a matter of instrumentality, autonomy and result-orientation, which fit the stereotypes of men rather than those of women. Sex stereotypes are culturally based beliefs prescribing appropriate and inappropriate behaviours for the two genders. Against this backdrop the present study intends to examine the socio-cultural determinants of women leadership at the top in Southeast Asian countries. The book is important for the top management of different organisations. It can be used as a reference book in the MBA course on organisational behaviour in different management institutes.
