Confirmatory modeling was used to test models of situational and individual influences on women's and men's managerial advancement. Although an overall model fitted the data well, separate models for women and men were more explanatory. Training led to managerial advancement and was of more advantage to men than to women. Work experience and educationcreased training, again more for men than for women. A spouse and dependents at home reduced women's work experience but increased men's, with subsequent effects on training and thus advancement. Finally, career encouragement had a more positive effect on training for women than for men. The study employed 531 women and 501 men who were managers in public and private sector Australian organizations and occupied 6 managerial levels.
