Gender issues have become a significant topic of discussion in recent years as numerous sessions are being held worldwide talking about women progression in all areas of life. Recognising gender and cultural differences are fundamental to business success when considered in the context of emerging global economy. Women contribute immensely in sustainable development, building stronger economies and improve the quality of lives of communities. The importance of women’s contribution in enforcing sustainable development was recognised when a lack of corporate responsibility among financial institutions in the United States and banks worldwide brought economic collapse. Promoting gender equality and empowering women is a critical objective for both emerging and developed countries, besides, is the focus of the third United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Despite these advances, considerable differences in the gender composition of senior management positions still exist and the purpose of this research is to explore gender stereotyping in the organisations in Bangladesh.
