Abstract : Despite widespread awareness of changing patterns of work/family relations, career procedures in organizations are still not responding adequately to this change. The response is inadequate because the working conceptions on which it is based remain traditional. This paper outlines 6 such traditional assumptions, which are patterned around the notion of homogeneity. It then considers the way new career procedures, based on an assumptive pattern of pluralism, might be negotiated. (Author)
