Utilizing a survey of Egyptian managers, we explore gender differences in ethical attitudes along two dimensions: (1) perceived ethical strategies for career advanceme nt, or upward-influence ethics , and (2) perceived ethical roles of business in society and the natural environment, or business social and environmental responsibility. Employing a variance decomposition procedure, we identify substantive differences in t he ethical perceptions of Egyptian male and female managers. Female managers find more covert upward-influence strategies - strategies that are less aboveboard and transparent -acceptable and eschew overt upward-influence tactics - strategies that are abo veboard and transparent. Female managers also envision a larger role for business in society, particularly in terms of social responsibilities than do male managers.
