Women’s Careers and Leadership Development

Adams, S. M., Weiss, J. W. (2011). Gendered paths to technology leadership.New Technology, Work and Employment, 26 (3), 222-237. Results indicate that more than men, women aspiring technology leaders are heeding expert advice by assuming roles that focus less on technology and more on business and change management. The stereotype that women are better at working with people may be working in their favour in preparing them for advancement.

Bevelander, D. & Page, M. J. (2011) Ms Trust: Gender, Networks and Trust- Implications for Management and Education, Academy of Management Learning and Education, 10(4), 623-642. Results suggest that women tend to trust each other less in a risky professional environment compared to men. Study finds that women socialize with each other but when it comes to risk taking, women exclude each other and prefer to network with men.
