Gender and career: realities and challenges


Ismail, Maimunah (2008) Gender and career: realities and challenges. [Inaugural Lecture]

Abstract / Synopsis

One of the ways to study the dynamics of gender is through its interaction with career. It is argued that the construction of career processes and realities follow a gender breakdown. However, the question of gender and career is still somewhat new and less understood in the Malaysian context. This inaugural paper aims to highlight emerging concepts and realities about gender and careers. The paper first theorizes gender and career, presents some data on demography and employment and career positions by gender in selected organizations. The paper then highlights the implications of the gendered nature of careers for individuals and organizations; and finally draws conclusions and identifies challenges for organizational policy development.
