Blurb/Shorttext:
Studies have shown that women are a minority in non-traditional careers, have slow career growth compared to their male colleagues and almost invisible in leadership positions, therefore excluded in power structure. These have been attributed to culture, socialisation, conditioning and self-perception of the women themselves. However, predicting factors of female academics’ career in Nigerian Universities are yet to be examined. This study, therefore, affirmed the efficacy or otherwise of psycho-social and organisational climate factors as predictors of female academics’ career growth and leadership positions in universities in South-West Nigeria. The study employed both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies. The quantitative aspect adopted the survey research design of the ex-post facto. Multistage sampling involving the use of purposive and stratified random techniques were used to select 898 respondents from six Universities in South-West Nigeria. Five hundred and thirty eight Female Academics from Graduate Assistant to Professor, three hundred male academics, (senior lecturers) sixty members of appointment and promotion committee participated in the study.
