Abstract

Variables which affect female advancement in South African organizations, such as aspects of the organization structure, i.e. the power hierarchy, composition of levels in companies and the reward structures, are discussed. Analyses of organization processes such as selection and promotion of organizational members provide examples of premarket discrimination and disparate treatment Group structure and processes such as informal networks, the exclusion and inclusion of select members can also create subtle obstacles. Solutions to the slower advancement of women in organizations should be sought in both personal action plans formulated by career-oriented women and creation of enabling conditions in companies.

Die opwaartse mobiliteit van vroue in Suid-Afrikaanse ondernemings word deur 'n veelvoud van faktore beinvloed. Die effek van organisasiestruktuur op personeelbeleid, magsbasisse en vergoedingsbeleid word bespreek. 'n Analise van organisatoriese prosesse soos seleksie en bevordering toon dat sekere vorms van diskriminasie wel voorkom. Groepsprosesse en strukture soos byvoorbeeld marginaliteit, sosiale uitsluiting en stereotipering veroorsaak ook hindernisse. Oplossings vir die stadiger vordering van vroue kan gevind word in die formulering van beroepsvroue se persoonlike loopbaanbeplanning en deur die skep van bemagtigende toestande in ondernemings.
