dc.description.abstract The National Bank of Ethiopia (NBE) as a central bank is expected to be proactive and stay in par with the dynamic nature of the international as well as domestic macro-economic issues. To do so increasing the number of talented women in the leadership position will increase diverse styles of thinking, corporate governance and ethical behavior. But, still now women are deeply underrepresented in the NBE. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to assess the advancement of women to leadership positions in the National Bank of Ethiopia. This study was guided by the combination of glass ceiling theory, feminist theory, ecological model and gender organization system theory. Exploratory and Descriptive survey is adopted for the study involving both quantitative and qualitative techniques. A total of 188 respondents (30%) from the target population were sampled; where 113(60%) female and 75(40%) staffs were selected by using snowball sampling technique. Moreover 6 female and 2 male managers participated in interview purposively. Descriptive statistics such as frequencies and percentages are used to analyze the data. The findings from the study revealed that women are indeed underrepresented in the leadership position of NBE. There are several factors or barriers at the Intrinsic and extrinsic level. The Intrinsic barriers are women’s psychological factor at a personal level. Extrinsic barriers are sociological factors that are institutional barriers and socio –political barriers. However this study has identified the major barriers in NBE are the extrinsic barriers. Finally the researcher has forwarded some success factors. Generally, in order to solve this problem efficiently, establishing integrated effort and different strategies at intrinsic and extrinsic level are very crucial. en_US
