The number of women officers in Nepali public organizations is increasing in recent years. Consequently, role of women officers as manager and leader has been more crucial for overall performance of organization and effective service delivery to the people. Research shows that differences are still prevailing in organizations in terms of gender perspectives and, opportunities, competencies and cultural orientation toward women managers. For ensuring gender equality, as in the broader arena of socio- economic development, affirmative action programs are in place to encourage and empower women at work.

Women officers in public organizations need to be equipped with essential managerial skills and competencies to meet the challenging role of a manager in the context of changing public expectations and work environment. Similarly, they require some additional considerations in developing core competencies to lead work organizations since they possess additional responsibilities and difficulties in personal and professional life as compared to male counterparts. In this context, understanding management, self-development skills for meaningful life and successful career and, essential managerial skills are three important dimensions of developing competencies of women officers in public organizations.

In this connection, Center for Organization Development, under Management Learning Group at NASC, is organizing a ten working days training program for women officers of the government organizations and public enterprises with a view to develop key skills in managing and leading their work organizations successfully.
