This study targets professional women of cultural enterprises in China as objective, applying SEM empirical analysis to investigate the relationship of professional women’s work and family conflicts and turnover intention. It also tries to verify whether work and family relationships (managerial support and organizational family support) are mediating effects between work and family conflicts and turnover intention. The results showed that the greater work and family conflict professional women are facing, the greater their tendency to leave, but managerial support in the work and family relationship will produce a mediating effect; however, no effect of organizational family support was proved. It is recommended that companies should pay attention to work and family conflicts of female staff, and apply managerial support to reduce turnover intention.
