Abstract: Employees working in Hong Kong were surveyed on their attitudes towards managing equal opportunities for women. Results indicate that gender is a better p redictor of attitudes than work identity. Manager/employee work identity has an add-on moderating effect on some women-friendly policies but not on others. Out of seven women-friendly dimensions, women as managers are less receptive of only two: `training and development’ and `positive equal opportunities’; men as managers, in contrast, are less resistant to `training and development’ and `¯ exitime’. The ®ndings suggest that there are three levels of gatekeeping: one, male employees; two, male managers; and three, female managers. We suggest that to help women employees b reak the glass ceiling, different organisational and societal change programmes are needed to target the different groups of gatekeepers.
