Research by the Knowledge Academy reveals that companies are 18% more likely to send men on work-related training than women. Is it that organizations are offering more training to men? Or is it that women are not requesting outside training as often as men?
It appears to be the latter, according to Linda Babcock, a professor of economics at Carnegie Mellon University, and the author of “Women Don’t Ask”. Women are socialized from an early age not to promote their own interests and to focus instead on the needs of others. Men, on the other hand, are taught that they can ask for more.
Not only is this not good for women, but it is not good for organizations. Countless studies from McKinsey, Harvard and other respected research organizations have proven that gender diversity at all levels of management and leadership create the most profitable and effective organizations.
