Abstract
This study investigates the underrepresentation of women in higher positions within the Korean Central Government, focusing on three factors. Utilizing a sample of 81 female public servants, the research examines the influence of female role models and mentors, as well as perceptions regarding the proportion of female officials in higher-ranked positions on the promotion aspirations and turnover intentions of female public servants. The ordered logistic regression analysis indicates a negative link between female public servants’ perception of the female proportion in high-ranking positions and their turnover intention to switch departments. Furthermore, while this study finds no statistically significant results for the impact of female role models or mentors in its quantitative analysis, qualitative analysis reveals a nuanced impact of female role models and mentors in leadership roles not captured by quantitative data. These influential figures inspire and motivate female counterparts in career development, as well as reduce retirement intentions. The study aims to contribute valuable insights into gender representation within the Korean Central Government. Additionally, implications for theoretical frameworks and suggestions for future research directions are discussed.
