Women And The Workplace: Giving Credit Where It Is Due
We’re going to talk now about a new study about women and the workplace.
A a new study finds that women are more likely to give credit to male team members, even if it means diminishing their own contributions. Why? And what impact does this tendency have on the workplace?
The Atlantic “The series of studies looked at 34 men and 36 women who were told to complete a task that would be completed independently but would be judged on the group performance of a partner they were “paired” with. In the first study, each individual task was identical. Each participant was paired with a fictional teammate of the opposite sex he or she believed to be real.”
