The doctoral study is embedded within an interpretivist and feminist paradigm. Although access to mentoring and social capital was seen as likely to enhance the progression of females to senior managerial roles, gendered work family expectations, gendered culture, normative performances of gendered senior management were identified as obstacles in advantages of mentoring and social capital.
