The women 'power'

Manage Mentor
Mark van Vugt and Anjana Ahuja

For better governance, include women on boards

When men and women work together, men are quicker to assume the position of a leader even when a better-qualified woman is present, write Mark van Vugt and Anjana Ahuja in Selected. The authors cite the observation of Charles A. O'Reilly III, a Stanford University business professor, that it is not gender per se which leads to the glass ceiling for women, but the overwhelming male desire to compete.
