Abstract

This study investigated the possible effects of sex on managerial value systems. A matched-subject design, involving 130 male and female managers, was utilized. Generally, the similarities in value systems of males and females outweighed the differences. However, contrary to traditional sex-role stereotypes, female managers placed a greater emphasis on their careers vs. family/home life than did male managers.
