'Gender inequality is due to bias, not differences in behavior' conclusion from study of how men and women interact
A company had men and women wear sensors to study interactions: same behavior leads to diff outcome due to bias
A Study Used Sensors to Show That Men and Women Are Treated Differently at Work
Bias, not behavior, explains differences in promotion rates between women & men. #ILookLikeASurgeon
Noted something interesting: I shared this article on facebook & women both 'liked' and shared it, but no men did
Very interesting findings: #gender inequality due to bias, not differences in behavior.
"The difference between men and women was due not to their behavior but to how they were treated."
The behaviour of men & women at a company was analysed by sensor technology: same behaviour, but different effects.
Turns out, *women don't even behave differently at work*. But men get promoted way more.
"The data implies that gender differences may lie not in how women act but in how people perceive their actions."
“Gender inequality is due to bias, not differences in behavior.”
Water is wet, stop worrying so much about imposter syndrome like women are broken. Society is broken.
More data demonstrating that gender bias is REAL. cc:
Study shows that arguments about gender inequality at work stemming from women's behaviour (i.e. not 'leaning in' for promotion etc.) "miss the bigger picture". Disturbingly, though unsurprisingly, women & men act identically but are treated differently.
Newsflash: Gender inequality is down to bias, not differences in behaviour. #JoinWE
researchers put sensors on men & women in workplace to measure communication & networking. found: bias against women

"We found almost no differences in the behavior of men and women...Yet women weren’t advancing and men were."
“Our data implies that gender differences may lie not in how women act but in how people _perceive_ their actions.”
Men perceived as more responsible when they have #children. Women seen as being less committed to #work #inequality
"Data implies gender differences may lie not in how women act (leaning in!) but in how people perceive their actions." DUH.
"we found almost no perceptible differences in the [office communication] behavior of men and women"
More evidence it's time to stop fixing women
“Gender inequality is due to bias, not differences in behavior.“
Well I never. Gender differences in promotion shown to be due not to (women’s) behaviour, but to bias.
Really interesting method. Men and women don't behave differently at work but their behavior is...
"Bias, as we define it, occurs when two groups of people act identically but are treated differently. Our data implies that gender differences may lie not in how women act but in how people perceive their actions."

Leaning in not enough to fight bias: sociometric data shows women act the same but treated different, promoted less
No observable differences in behavior, and yet fewer women are promoted. It's not all about "leaning in" . . .
Gender inequality is due to bias not behavior.
"Our data implies that gender differences may lie not in how women act but in how people perceive their actions."
Interesting use of work sensors: this study finds no difference in office behaviour between men & women, suggesting workplace inequality is not due to behaviour (i.e 'women aren't leaning in enough') but treatment.

Strategies like “lean-in” might miss bigger picture: Gender inequality is due to bias, not differences in behavior.
Interesting data driven piece on gender bias ; tl;dr it’s not about XX behaviour - hypothesis that perception key and capacity (work/family/home)
“Gender inequality is due to bias, not differences in behavior”...nice study, but I feel un-empowered

"Gender inequality is due to bias, not differences in behavior...the problem isn’t lack of access but how...
“While programs aimed at strengthening #women’s #leadership skills are valuable, companies need to focus on the more fundamental problem of reducing #bias. This means trying bias-reduction programs and developing policies that level the playing field.”
Using sociometric badges to find that women and men...Act the Same but Are Treated Very Differently
If men & women are equal stakeholders in a family, they should presumably be leaving the workforce at the same rate.
Pretty much every time we measure bias directly.

Actual finding from sensors: no differences. But but but...
In one company (typical business school study), men & #women are same at work, bias explains lack of #women at top

#Gender differences in behavior at work? New sensor technique found none, yet promotion rates differed. Bias?
We Asked Men and Women to Wear Sensors at Work. They Act the Same but Are Treated Very Differently. Bias = reality.
"Our analysis suggests that the difference in promotion rates between men and women in this company was due not...
A study uses sensors to track workplace behavior, shows men & women act similarly, but are treated differently. Authors posit that differential in promotion rates may be due to bias, not behavior #gender #diversity
