Karen Miller

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to argue that managerialism, as applied to the public sector, contributes to a gendered organisational culture that disadvantages female career progression. The main finding is that public sector managerialism, and consequent transactional and stereotypical masculine styles of management, inhibits female career progression.
