This paper discusses, through the author's personal experience, the issues concerning the problem of gender roles within business communities, which favor men over women in advancement to higher office due to sexist issues. The paper attempts to show that, by analyzing the societal perspectives and leadership issues surrounding patriarchal business institutions, one can clearly see that diversity would solve many managerial problems by opening a dual gender platform in business culture.
From the Paper:"Another preventative way that this organization could have staved off poor morale and productivity by denying hits woman a middle management position is based on views of leadership. This perspective has often involved how men judge women in relation to societal norms set within American business culture. Although many American businesses "take this economic standpoint" (King, 1999, p.136) of patriarchal devaluation for women to be allocated to lower wage brackets, it is clear that women are only seen as "leaders" in a domestic point o view. Obviously, one can assume that men have allocated women to these lower wage positions, since they were the primary business owners, and have disenfranchised them with a limited perspective for women as leaders.
