Perception vs. Reality
Women “Take Care,” Men “Take Charge” reveals that exposure to women leaders doesn’t necessarily lessen stereotyping; often, it reinforces it, creating “extreme perceptions” of women leaders. How do behaviors and attitudes of each gender affect roles and norms?
There are many more similarities than differences between women and men in organizational settings.Yet it’s what you don’t see and hear that often counts in the workplace. Most people are not aware of how stereotyping automatically influences their thinking and, therefore, believe that their perceptions are based on objective observations. By shining a spotlight on this often unspoken and insidious barrier to women’s advancement, we can see how gender-based stereotyping often operates as shorthand for fact and shortchanges women in the workplace.
