The reasons why women are under-represented in management posts are complex, but not mysterious. Social services departments are full of women who are able to describe their experience to those who are prepared to listen This report is based on findings from interviews with 48 women managers. It aims to provide a picture of what it is like to be a woman manager in a social services department, about training and management development opportunities and how the value and working practices of the organization affect women's progress within them. It also offers policy and training recommendations that should provide a way forward for those who wish to address the current inequalities.
