Abstract

This Paper proposed to conduct a study into the factors affecting the career development and advancement of women in the public service, and possibly find reasons for the discrepancies between the number of men and women in management positions. It was determined that the factors of employment equity/pay equity; socialisation/history of women at work; day care/family responsibilities; and, managerial competence, affect the prospects for advancement of women in the workplace. Chapter 1 provides a review of literature which focuses upon factors affecting the career development and advancement of women in the workplace. Chapter 2 supplies an enquiry into, and explanation of, the DELPHI technique including the reason for its use. Chapter 3 affords an explanation of the research design used in this Paper. Chapter 4 provides a discussion of the results of the DELPHI experiment. Chapter 5 serves as the conclusion to this Paper, providing a summary of the DELPHI experiment and a selection of comments and opinions voiced by the participants in this experiment.
