Research: men and women need different kinds of networks to succeed – 02/25/19
Article by Professor Brian Uzzi discusses his research on the optimal professional networks for men versus women. Men benefit not so much from size of network but from being central in the MBA student network—or connected to multiple “hubs”, or people who have a lot of contacts across different groups of students. Women benefited in terms of post-MBA job placement from being central in the network too; but to achieve the executive positions with the highest levels of authority and pay they also had to have an inner circle of close female contacts, despite having similar qualifications to men including education and work experience.
