ONLINE – Applied Micro Workshop – Ghazala Azmat, “Gender Promotion Gaps: Career Aspirations and Workplace Discrimination”

— filed under:

Ghazala Azmat, Vicente Cuñat, and Emeric Henry: “Gender Promotion Gaps: Career Aspirations and Workplace Discrimination” Using a representative survey of U.S. lawyers, we document a sizeable gender gap in early partnership aspirations. This explains half of the later gender promotion gap. We propose a model to understand aspirations and empirically test it. We show that aspirations induce higher effort, are correlated with expectations of success, and preference to make partner. Furthermore, aspirations are linked to mentoring, fertility choices, and early experiences of discrimination. Facing harassment or demeaning comments affects later promotion, mediated via aspirations. We highlight the importance of accounting for, and managing, aspirations as an early intervention to close gender career gaps.
