Despite the increasing number of women working in the tourism sector in the service sector, discrimination is seen in tourism businesses as the main problem in organizations. The purpose of this study is to show the influence of career barriers encountered by middle and senior women managers in hotel enterprises on career development strategies. For this purpose, a model has been proposed to determine the effect of career barriers of female managers in hotel operations on career development strategies. Survey data were obtained from questionnaires of 45 four and five star hotel operations operating in Alanya and 329 data available in the study were interpreted. Corelation and multiple regression analysis techniques were used to test the research model. As a result of the analysis of the severity and direction of the relationships between the perceptions of career managers and the perceptions of career managers of hotel managers, there was a negative statistically significant negative correlation between career barriers and career strategies. In addition, it was determined that the career obstacles faced by female managers have an impact on career development strategies.
