Abstract This paper investigates data from reports submitted by Finance and Insurance Organisations employing more than 100 persons to the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency to identify their approach undertaken in implementing equal employment opportunity. This industry is a female dominated industry but despite the high numbers of women employed in the industry there are limited numbers of women in management. This study is different to others in that it identifies issues in one industry and links organisational approach to equal opportunity with the employment status of women. The issues identified include limited numbers of women in management. The findings show no correlation between the equal opportunity approach used and numbers of women in management.
