Gender’s Unspoken Role in Leadership Evaluations

Denis Lyons and Connie McArthur

Using the actual words of senior corporate executives speaking about the leadership performance of their colleagues, the authors document the extent to which gender figures in performance evaluation at this level, putting women at a disadvantage. The research illustrates the challenges that women face in accommodating themselves to male-defined executive roles and suggests how corporate leaders--men in particular--can make these detrimental effects discussable within their own executive suites.
