Working Title of Thesis: 
Women in Management: A Multi-Level Perspective
Abstract: 

The aim of this thesis by publication is to explore the attitudes towards women as managers in Ireland from a multi-level perspective: student / workers perspective and decision-makers perspective, and To examine organisational responses to the changing demographic profile of workers. In doing so there are 4 research objectives: (1) To investigate female appointments to managerial/decision making roles in Ireland (2) To examine the attitudes towards women’s suitability to managerial roles among students and workers (3) To determine whether or not societal changes in Ireland have had an impact on stereotypical attributes ascribed to men and women in Ireland and (4) to examine the relationship between offering flexi-time, as a response to the caring demands of the workforce, and HR and organisational outcomes.
