Abstract This paper sets out to identify the approaches undertaken in implementing equal employment opportunity in the transport, and services to transport industry. This male dominated industry employs limited numbers of women and consequently there are limited numbers of women in management. The study investigates data from reports submitted to the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency by organisations employing more than 100 persons. The findings indicate a correlation between the equal opportunity approach used and numbers of women in management. This study is different to others in that it identifies issues specific to one industry and links organisational approach to equal opportunity with the employment status of women.
