How policy interventions may enhance women’s striving for leadership positions

Nater, Christa; Sczesny, Sabine (14 April 2016). How policy interventions may enhance women’s striving for leadership positions. In: 31st annual conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP). Anaheim, CA. 14.04-16.04.2016.

This research examined how policy interventions which vary in strictness affect women’s and men’s interest in leadership positions. Results showed that only certain affirmative action policies enhance women’s inclination to apply through an increased self-ascribed fit with the position. Moreover, men were not affected by the policy interventions.
