CENTER EVENT: Behavioral Policy Speaker Series — Hannah Riley Bowles

"Asking, Bending, and Shaping: A Reconceptualization of Gender in Career Negotiations"—Is there merit to the critique of female negotiations "women don't ask"? Hannah Riley Bowles (Harvard Kennedy School) will present preliminary findings and theoretical propositions generated from three qualitative studies of executives' career-related negotiations. Data on executives' career-related negotiations suggest that both male and female executives negotiate regularly for career-related opportunities that involve "bending" and "shaping" organizational norms. Research findings suggest gender constraints on career negotiations relate to gender incongruence rather than to gender differences.
