Abstract

As more women move into managerial and executive positions more attention is being given to the differences between men and women regarding the manner in which they respond to ethical dilemmas. This study examines if the manner in which men and women respond to an ethical dilemma, relative to each other, depends on the situational dynamics associated with the dilemma. A questionnaire consisting of four vignettes which depicted actual business situations was used to collect data from 171 managers of a large Southeastern financial and communication conglomerate. Results suggest that the manner in which men and women respond to an ethical dilemma, relative to each other, is contingent on the situational dynamics that are associated with the dilemma, with women responding more ethically than men in some situations but not in other situations.
