Este artículo presenta una parte de una amplia investigación cuyo objetivo era proponer Políticas Activas Institucionales para favorecer la inserción laboral de las mujeres en sectores o profesiones en las que estén subrepresentadas. El trabajo trata de profundizar en el comportamiento del empresariado para determinar cual es su grado de responsabilidad e influencia en la segregación sexual del mercado de trabajo. Para ello se realizó un estudio cualitativo. Los resultados nos muestran un aumento de la sensibilización. Los empresarios creen que no es justo, pero no se sienten responsables. Demandan una mayor participación del Gobierno y de la sociedad en general, a la vez que reconocen desconocer las políticas activas institucionales existentes. / This paper presents a part of a wide investigation. The main object was to propose Political Actions to the policymakers to favor the labor insertion of women in professions where women are under-represented. This paper is an attempt to study in depth the employers’ behavior to find their degree of responsibility and influence in the sex segregation in the labor market. A qualitative study was made. The results show us that the sensibility to the issue is raised. Entrepreneurs believe that the situation is not fair, but they do not feel it is their responsibility to make the changes. They ask a higher participation from the Government and from Society in general, and at the same time they recognize that they do not know the political movements such as affirmative action.
