Rethink What You “Know” About High-Achieving Women

March 22, 2024
Harvard Business Review
Summary
In "Rethink What You ‘Know’ About High-Achieving Women," authors Ely, Stone, and Ammerman debunk common misconceptions surrounding the career trajectories of Harvard Business School's female alumni. Their extensive survey on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of women's admission to the program challenges prevalent beliefs, revealing that career aspirations and expectations of both genders are quite similar. They dispel the myth that a significant number of female graduates choose to "opt out" of their careers for family care, showing this does not account for the gender gap in senior management. The findings advocate for companies to reevaluate hiring biases and foster an equitable environment for all employees, emphasizing the need to address the outdated stereotype that women are more likely to abandon their careers after becoming parents.
