Bridging the Gender Gap
Oxford University Press, 2014
In her book, Bridging the Gender Gap, Lynn Roseberry and co-author Johan Roos dismantle seven popular myths about men, women, business and leadership that sustain the gender pay gap.
Drawing on the latest research on gender in sociology, psychology, history, economics, management, politics, law and philosophy, the book offers a guide to empowering individual decisions, actions, and behavior that will help narrow – or even close – the gender gap in leadership and employment.
“A must read for business managers. Carefully argued and cooly presented, Roseberry and Roos offer proof that diversity and gender balance ‘pay off’ in terms of enhanced workplace culture and a company’s bottom line.”
“Too often achieving parity for women is positioned as a ‘do good’ action – and nothing is wrong with that. But, by acting on the guiding principles in Bridging the Gender Gap, it moves from doing good to actually make organizations thrive and grow… and unleashed the power of an economic future that will benefit all.”
Research shows that the gender gap in faculty in European business schools is not closing. Why is that? And what can we do to improve the situation?
Lynn Roseberry shares her suggestions in this article for EFMD Global Focus Magazine.
Report: “The Gender Gap in European Business Schools: A Leadership Perspective” (EFMD, 2016)
How do European business school leaders’ understanding of and commitment to faculty gender diversity affect action taken by the business schools towards achieving gender parity?
This research project was led by Lynn Roseberry, PhD (CBS), and initiated and funded by EFMD, EQUAL, as well as Copenhagen Business School, Lancaster University Management School, and Jönköping International Business School.
Based on Lynn Roseberry’s book, and several compelling cases, we have developed seven guiding principles that guide action to close the gender gap.
These seven principles sit at the heart of everything we do – from developing Mosaic®, our Serious Game, to facilitating leadership workshops with clients all over the world.
