Women; employment; gender equality; financial sector.

Although there has been women empowerment campaigns for a long time, study has indicated that sex-based discrimination has been rampant globally and selection for employment in organisations has continued to favour men.

Mable’s research interests lie in women’s employment in the financial sector of Zambia. She is particularly interested in investigating the factors that prevent women from joining the financial sector and climbing the echelon ladder.  The study aims to provide an analysis of the trend of the women’s employment in the financial sector of Zambia in order to fill the growing gap between the gender policy and the practices in relation to gender equity.  Mable intends to use a tested and developed model of gender analysis based on solidly grounded theoretical and empirical platforms, such as employment and recruitment patterns; progression and measurements within the financial sector to address inequality as well as to develop a framework to overcome the entrenched habits and feelings towards the status quo that if went unchallenged, may affect the efficiency and growth of individual organisations, even the whole financial sector.
