To Grow Their Careers, Women Need a Female Inner Circle

Women benefit significantly in their careers by having a close inner circle of other women. Consider these research findings from Brian Uzzi, Yang Yang and Nitesh V. Chawla:

“We studied what types of networks helped new male and female MBAs land executive leadership positions. We found that men benefit not so much from size of network but from being central in the MBA student network—or connected to multiple ‘hubs,’ or people who have a lot of contacts across different groups of students. Women benefited in terms of post-MBA job placement from being central in the network too; but to achieve the executive positions with the highest levels of authority and pay they also had to have an inner circle of close female contacts, despite having similar qualifications to men including education and work experience.

To help you grow your connections, we have built two networking sessions into our Women Leaders in Los Angeles event.

Career Panel Will Inspire You to Take on Leadership
