Abstract

This research aims to determine the comparative employment equality and opportunities faced by women and men in Croatia. Morespecifically, their promotion opportunities, the challenges that women are faced with, aiming to reach managerial positions in business organizations and the individuals responsible for decision making in business organizations. For that purpose managers in organizations were surveyed in order to study their opinions. The results clearly indicate gender inequality in business organizations, based on the perception of respondents. Half of the respondents in managerial positions preferred a rational style of decision making and a consultative and constructive leadership style. Those respondents that were evaluated as open collaborators, were considered self-critical, with good communication skills, and they were considered to be more likely to be honest in business and to show empathy. Research results on other elements affecting the position of women in business organizations are presented and discussed in the paper as well.
