dc.description.abstractThis paper compares and contrasts the policies and practices outlined in equal employment opportunity (EEO) program reports from two different industries; namely transport and finance, both distinctly gendered, in order to identify programs predictive of increased numbers of women employed in management or non-traditional areas. Findings indicate the proportion of women in these areas has remained static for the past two decades, despite increasing numbers of women in these industries and legislative requirements of antidiscrimination and equal employment opportunity. Few organisations in either industry are developing proactive strategies in the areas of recruiting, promoting, and retaining women. In contrast, organisations displayed significant proactivity in the implementation of equal opportunity strategies for the addressing work and life requirements ensuring equality in participation but not in access, or movement into management or leadership roles. It is argued that this tactic supports gendered work organisation.en_US
