The gender dimension in the career management of banking human resources in Cameroon
Tella Negou Martial Larios
The exploratory analysis of organizations in Africa suggests a relatively rare and / or weak presence of women in large management bodies, compared with their male counterparts, who are increasingly numerous. Our research aims to understand how the gender factor influences the management of banking human resources careers in Cameroon. We used the qualitative inductive approach in our approach. Data collection and analysis are conducted using a questionnaire administered to fifty respondents and in-depth semi-structured interviews with nine managers of the banks visited. The results show a phenomenon of ceilings on female careers with a cantonment of women in the position of agent and their scarcity in the management position. However, these banks must practice effective career management that enables them to face social challenges, motivate and promote equal opportunities between men and women.
