Catalyst and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) present:

Tackling Common Myths About Women in the Workforce and the Link Between the Gender Wage Gap and the Gender Leadership Gap

The myths…

•    Give it time. Since more women than men are earning higher degrees, the number of women in business leadership will soon match, if not outpace, the number of men.
•    Men make more than women because women don’t negotiate well and lack ambition.
•    Women choose to leave the workforce or take an easier path because they want to start families.

We’ve heard it all before. These myths are often used to explain the persistent gender gaps in opportunity, leadership, and pay.

The truth…

Catalyst research shows that none of the above is true. It’s time to acknowledge that the gender gap does not exist solely because of choices women are making.

After remarks from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Ilene H. Lang, President & Chief Executive Officer, Catalyst, and Deborah M. Soon, Senior Vice President, Strategy & Marketing, Catalyst, will dismantle these and other myths about women in leadership and present groundbreaking findings from Catalyst’s research on women in leadership.
