Factors Affecting the Career Growth of Women in Federal Executive Authorities
Public Administration
(Master’s programme)
2019
Modern socio-economic conditions, the unstable geopolitical situation in the world requires shifting the established management paradigms to modernized and flexible management models. In this regard, the growth of research and interest in the phenomenon of women's leadership, the gender component of politics and management at all stages, there is a reasonable trend. Sociologists and psychologists are unanimous in the opinion that a professional leader is a person with a number of qualities and abilities required to fulfill his duties as a leader and they are not dependent on gender. The ability to rationally prioritize, create and maintain a team, competent allocation of time and resources: this whole range of characteristics should not depend on gender.

In this paper, the factors that have a direct and inverse correlation to the career of women who have reached the highest positions in federal executive bodies will be investigated. The collection and analysis of factors is related to the pyramid of power existing in the Russian state government, taking into account the fact that in the 21st century Russia is experiencing an active feminization of the entire state apparatus. It is the existing gender asymmetry in the possession of power resources for making key decisions that leads to such negative consequences within the framework of the development of the institute of public service: the under-utilization of the entire personnel potential and the deterioration of professionalism of personnel in the public service. In this regard, the work will address not only the issue of enhancing the professionalization of civil servants of women, but also the issue of identifying factors in improving the efficiency of public service that arise in the process of building a career.
