There are now more women in management in Australia than a decadeago. A number of factors have contributed to their increasing numbers,including changes in legislation supporting women working, more childcare places, changes in the structure of work, and attitudes to womenbosses. While their representation in management has increased, theirnumbers in senior positions is still very low. It will take time tochange peoples perceptions of women in management, to overcomediscrimination, and to develop structures at work and in the communitythat will aid womens move into management. There will need to be moretraining and development opportunities. Time is also on their side.
