Our policy is to treat men and women equally: The status of women in the finance industry

By Erica L. French and Glenda Strachan


This paper investigates data from reports submitted by finance and insurance\ud organisations employing more than 100 persons to the Equal Opportunity for Women\ud \ud in the Workplace Agency, to identify their approach undertaken in implementing\ud equal employment opportunity. This industry is a female-dominated industry but,\ud despite the high numbers of women employed in the industry, there are limited\ud numbers of women in management. This study is different from others in that it\ud identifies issues in one industry and links the organisational approach to equal\ud opportunity with the employment status of women. The issues identified include\ud limited numbers of women in management. The findings show no correlation between the equal opportunity approach used and numbers of women in management
