[en] This research discusses the status of female auditors in Lebanon with a special
emphasis on individual career and family concerns. It attempts at investigating the
status of female auditors, and at pointing out the major hindrances that they face
when trying to achieve a balance between career and family life; thus, issues such
as organizational, individual, and social factors are discussed. The focus is to discuss
the status of female Lebanese auditors through analysis and conclusions drawn
from practical experience and to present a model of the issues in relation to certain
variables and factors. Questionnaires and interviews were used to collect the data.
Results show that the above-mentioned factors, cross-referenced with the glass
ceiling, work life balance, and turnover, are combined. Research revealed that many
factors mold the status of female auditors in Lebanon. The limitations of the study
stem from the fact that no such studies have been conducted in Lebanon and, thus,
the literature review was mainly constructed on published research done in the
West. Results reveal that the individual Lebanese female auditor is faced with a glass
ceiling only because she chose her family over her career, and when she chose to
leave the profession (turnover) it was because of her family duties, the long working
hours, stress, and work life balance that forced her to make a choice between herself
as a career women, or as a mother and wife. The study is aimed at establishing
possible relationship between academia, audit profession, and the business market.
