Hellenic Women Managers in the Telecommunications Sector: Living in Transition

15 Pages Posted: 26 Sep 2004

Abstract

This paper reports a research study into the career experiences and perspectives of a sample of women managers in the telecommunications industry in Greece. The study was conducted from a social constructionist perspective, seeking to explore how social and cultural factors affect the managers' perceptions. Tensions are explored between the research participants' relative satisfaction with their career progress and their limited representation at the senior management levels. The strength of cultural expectations on Hellenic women to marry is noted. (The authors are the primary researcher and her research supervisor, respectively.)
