Abstract
The identification of challenges faced by women administrators in their workplace was carried out in this research. A total of 124 women in the public and 124 in the private agencies were interviewed in the 6th district of Pangasinan province, Philippines. The random sample method was employed. Most of the women administrators belong to early adulthood, married, with lesser children and totally hold a bachelor's degree, new on their corresponding positions, continue to improve and develop their expertise by attending seminars and trainings. With regards to promotion, the majority answered they got it on a merit basis, with equal time, and had work as much as their colleagues. The majority did not experience sexual and mental harassment issues such as sharing of sexually inappropriate images or videos, anecdotes gestures, lewd jokes, and touches. On family care issues, most of them are not granted workplace privileges such as benefits for full maternity leave, special leave, also some turned down promotions, not permitted an official time for travel or pass slip when medical check-up is scheduled during working days, and to reduce their work hours to care children / family members and to attend to their activities. They dedicated most of their time to their jobs, depriving them on the opportunities to engage in various community activities such as job-related activities, membership to registered organizations, livelihood program, non-government and joining clean-up activities. With these, organizational policies must be formulated as basis for development advocacy program to help women administrators to give their best to balance harmony in work – family and community involvement.
