Description

The number of women managers in Nepali public organizations is increasing in recent years. Consequently, role of women officers as manager and leader has been more crucial for overall performance of organization and effective service delivery to the people. Research shows that differences are still prevailing in organizations in terms of gender perspective and, opportunities, competencies and cultural orientation toward women managers. For ensuring gender equality, as in the broader arena of socio-economic development, affirmative action programs are in place to encourage and empower women at work.
Women officers in public organizations need to be equipped with essential managerial skills and competencies to meet the challenging role of a manager in the context of changing public expectations and work environment. Similarly, they require some additional considerations in developing core competencies to lead work organizations since they possess additional responsibilities and difficulties in personal and professional life as compared to male counterparts. In this context, understanding changing context of management, leadership and developing essential managerial skills is critical for better performance of women managers in public organizations.

In this connection, Center for Organization Development of MLG has designed a five working days training program for women officers of the government organizations and public enterprises with a view to develop key skills in managing and leading their work organizations successfully.
