Assignment help for BHO0007 Management work and society

Requirement: An individual written assignment for the following question:

“Although  the number  of  women on  boards  of directors  and in  top  management  positions in organisations all around the world is

increasing it remains low, and is growing at a very slow pace  … Research into the reasons for the lack of female representation in

higher management positions has attributed it to workplace barriers, insufficient numbers of qualified women further down the

career ladder, discriminatory stereotyping of leadership attributes as male attributes, incompatibility between job structure and the

demands of raising a family, and self-imposed barriers. There is evidence of both horizontal and vertical segregation and

consequences of gender discrimination include the gender pay gap.”

(Segovia-Perez, Figueroa-Domecq, Fuentes-Moraleda & Munoz-Mazon, 2018)
