dc.description.abstract This paper analyses interviews with 41 men and women in senior academic leadership roles in five Australian universities. It explores whether management cultures change when women hold power. It contrasts interviewees' conceptions of the role gender has played in career success with notions which posit a gender-neutral organization. It probes the impact of the differentially constructed careers of men and women for appointment to senior positions. It identifies factors that sustain women, specifically collegiality, support from senior colleague and a critical mass of other women in power. Finally, in considering the unwillingness of some women to apply for further promotions, it suggests women are still positioned as outsiders to university management, although there is evidence that this is changing.
