Why is it important?

The results indicate that gender role stereotypes are challenged. It seems that the perceived managers’ personality is comprised of both agentic/masculine and communal/feminine characteristics and this insight is not perceived differently by men and women. This debates on whether the “glass ceiling” does exist alone or due to other determinants.


This study contributes to the literature both on gender role stereotyping research and on perceptions of managerial personality characteristics in Greece.
