'No love lost' says new gender survey

New survey reveals underlying anger and mistrust

The vast majority of male accountants (90%) believe they have been adversely
affected by attempts to create a more favourable working environment for women,
a survey by
www.careersinaudit.com
has found.

The survey threw up some anomalies though – while many men believe women are
being promoted even if they do not deserve it, more than three quarters (76%)
believe that a ‘glass ceiling’ preventing women from progressing does still
exist.

Max Williamson, chief executive of Careers in Audit, said: ‘There is a lot of
work to be done within the profession to iron out the mistrust,
misunderstandings and differences of perception that currently exist between the
sexes.

‘Senior managers need to take the lead and voice genuine support for such
policies. They must create an environment in which women do not feel ostracised
for having a family.’
