Draws on data from the 1979-1991 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (N = 6,111) to examine gender differences in employee participation in company-provided job training programs. Rather than closing the gender gap, the women's training disadvantage widened after controlling for theoretically important human capital, occupational, industrial, organizational, & family-stage variables. Further examination of women's & men's distributions on these independent variables & estimates of separate event-history equations suggest that gender segregation by occupation & industry, workweek length, & family-role obligations afford men better training opportunities than women. Suggestions are made for future research & speculations differed about the policy implications for closing the persistent gender gap in company-provided job training. 3 Tables, 1 Figure, 1 Appendix, 49 References.
