All organizations have work that no one wants to do: planning the office party, attending to that time-consuming client, or simply helping others. In "The No Club: Putting an End to Women’s Dead-End Work," Lise Vesterlund, Ph.D., the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Economics at the University of Pittsburgh, along with three colleagues from Carnegie Mellon University -- the original “No Club” -- document that women are disproportionately asked and expected to take on these tasks that inevitably go unrewarded, leaving women overcommitted and underutilized as companies forfeit revenue, productivity, and top talent. The book reveals how their subsequent groundbreaking research uncovered that women everywhere are unfairly burdened with “non-promotable work,” a tremendous problem we can—and must—solve.
Prof. Vesterlund is the director of the Pittsburgh Experimental Economics Laboratory (PEEL) and of the Behavioral Economic Design Initiative (BEDI). Her highly influential research on gender differences in advancement has been featured by the New York Times, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, The Washington Post, The Economist, Time Magazine, and Harvard Business Review.
Prof. Vesterlund will be in conversation with Barbara Bernstein, chief human resources officer at Magnetar Capital. Ms. Bernstein oversees the firm’s human resources, office services, and Magnetar Capital Foundation philanthropic work.
This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
