Summarizes the findings of a predominantly qualitative research enquiry into the perceptions that professional women who work in agricultural and rural science in field‐based situations have of their jobs and career opportunities in the Department of Primary Industries, Australia. Highlights issues relating to female traits not being valued by the organization for progression to management positions, family commitments conflicting with work commitments and sexual harassment by clients and colleagues. Suggests how the organization could improve workplace practices to retain and encourage professional women working in these roles.
