IIES/SNS International Policy Talks: Lise Vesterlund on barriers in women’s careers

Seminar 2017.06.15


Recent studies show that women spend more time than men on non-promotable tasks. Could that be one of the explanations to the wage gap between men and women and that men are more likely to reach leading positions?
