- Most women managers had university degrees in humanities disciplines, average 40 years age, and 5 to 10 years tenure.
- Managerial positions which require time, patient, wann behaviour, and sympathy were best suited to women.
- Opportunity for promotion was the most important motivational factor for to women managers.
On the Basis of these findings, the study offers few suggestions to women managers, and decision makers in organizations.
