AbstractThis study is intended as a different kind of response to the longstanding issue of the woman as an effective contributor to the employment marketplace. The tradition of women at work has been fraught with argument and political polarities. Mother, homemaker, worker, administrator, artist, president suggest a continuum on which women become integral to social meanings, not as new entrants to men's world, but as contributors to the same tasks as professional peers. The introduction of a distinction between the qualitative and theoretical variables to the evaluation of professional functions, redirects and even reconstructs the very meaning of effectiveness in jobs. The addition of this distinction to previous ways of judging employees and employers opens the door to an expanded awareness of employees/employers to considerations which must yield greater efficiency, productivity, and job satisfaction than was heretofore possible.
