ARMY WOMEN'S CORPS CAREER DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF GENDER EQUALITY ROLES AT ARMY HEADQUARTERS
Gender issues are not a new issue in people's lives. Gender is a construction of social roles based on gender differences which is still ongoing today. In general, gender issues that are clearly visible in human social life are generally shaped by stereotypes against certain gender roles to the issue of discrimination against women. Because basically every individual has the desire to increase their potential and develop their skills in organizations, as well as in the Army Women's Corps, in other words, everyone has the right to develop their careers so that they can fulfill their physiological and self-actualization needs which are increasing day by day along with development of time. The method used in this research is a case study using a qualitative approach, while the results of this study explain that, Kowad in its role in the defense sector has gone through several generations, besides that Kowad also has the same duties and roles in national defense as soldiers. other TNI. The similarity of tasks and roles was not supported by similarities in career development at Kowad. There is a gap in the aspect of role development based on gender equality in career development in Kowad, especially with promotions and placements, even though if viewed from an organizational point of view, the career development given to Kowad today is only limited to expertise in the fields of medicine and law. It is unfortunate considering that so many positions in other fields are given to male soldiers but are not given to female Kowad, meaning that in this case the leadership has not been able to open wider the door for career development for Kowad. AD, which throughout the history of the TNI has never happened, but there are some very unfortunate things in the program. First, the placement and assignment of Taruni graduates today is still not right, because if you look at the other male cadets, they are trained to become Platoon Commanders or Battalion Commanders, but today their assignments are not like the assignments of male soldiers who are actually targeted by leadership as a potential successor to future leaders, meaning that it is considered here that the program is less effective when viewed from the point of view of career development.
