But, as a statistical rule, these burdens primarily fall to women. Opportunities still exist for ambitious women to pursue high-paying careers and corporations are glad to oblige for high-performance talent.

However, opting for such a path may come at a sacrifice in other areas of life. Many women are not willing to make this decision.
Men, unencumbered by such restraints, can climb the greasy pole without any repercussions for their private life. This is broadly comparable to the previous years that we have been conducting the survey and is similar to other studies. We cannot expect companies to single-handedly solve this problem.
Indeed, corporations are also arguably victims to this effect as well, as senior leadership needs to be sourced from a wider talent pool as possible. Currently, management is missing many inspirational and effective female leaders. This lack of an alternative perspective may have a financial impact. A recent academic study found that companies with more women in leadership roles were more financially successful.
Without diversity of thought at the highest levels, companies may lose competitive edge. Promoting more women to senior leadership roles is a societal problem. The glass ceiling is warping the markets and leading to inefficient resource allocation. I am a researcher into supply chain management and corporate procurement.

Many — professional athletes, New York Ranger. We had a Knick. We had people who really, really lived that team mentality. There's no walls, and they're all together, and there's the — the cortisol high of doing trades together every single day, lots of testosterone. After having experienced the wins, in particular in, men testosterone tends to spike. And that makes men even more willing to take risks. That has been coined the winner's effect, meaning that, when we experience a win, that affects how we perceive risks going forward, and become even more risk-loving.
Interestingly enough, a number of papers now have been written which couldn't find a winner's effect for women. And that might help explain why women on Wall Street are paid just 68 cents to a man's dollar, and so few make it to or near the top. The males in charge value the winner's effect, even though it exaggerates losses too.
Accounts not being given equitably, that's really one way, or an account being taken away when you felt it wasn't something that you deserved. You have to understand that these men make a really good living, and chances are very high that, if they have children, their wife is probably staying home with their children. It is just sort of understood that, at a certain point, you're going to just leave to be with your family.
We do know that bias creeps in whenever we take potential into account. We don't naturally expect women to want to climb up the career leader. And if you don't think women are likely to climb, then it's a lot easier to treat them less professionally. She was really vivacious and beautiful, and she went over and she talked to him about it, and he said, yes, let's — we need to sit down, have a proper interview, et cetera.
And he said, let's meet at this bar. And she gets there, and she sat down at the table, and she said, when she put it down and started her prepared interview, he said, that's what this is about? And he threw a hotel room key on the — on the table, and said, you know, I thought that's why you wanted to meet, or something like — to that effect. No shock that, in the last decade, several major financial firms have settled large gender discrimination cases, while smaller suits, usually handled in-house and kept hush-hush, abound.
One of the people I have spoken with is a lawyer. I said, how many cases in this genre do you have a year? And he said, my firm?

About For years, Sherry herself found Wall Street gratifying, atmosphere notwithstanding. But she left in , when she realized she'd gone about as far as she could go.

Look, when you feel that your career's been determined for you and you're not progressing any further, it's incredibly ungratifying. Her husband remained in finance, but Sherry became a writer. Her first book, a children's mystery, was inspired by her New York apartment, where clues to solve an elaborate scavenger hunt are hidden in the walls. Behind each one is a replica of a room in the apartment. They fit together, and behind every single one of these, you could build out a whole house.
The mother of four had ample distractions, but Sherry kept dwelling on her more than a decade on Wall Street. I couldn't let it go. I tried.
It still bothered me. I just wanted to sort of discuss, to let you see through the lens of a woman what it's like to work in a place like that, what it feels like.
