How Does Hiring Women as Leaders Change Gender Stereotypes? Some Insights from Machine Learning.
Women continue to be underrepresented in leadership positions: a mere 9% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women. This is driven at least partly by gender stereotypes that associate men, but not women, with leadership-focused, agentic traits (e.g., being assertive and decisive). Given that these stereotypes are expressed in language, can we learn something about companies' attitudes towards women from how they speak? In this talk we will discuss how machine learning gives an insight into how women's association with leadership qualities varies across organizations, before focusing on what we can do about it. Specifically, we provide evidence that appointing women to the top tiers of management can help to mitigate deep-rooted stereotypes in a way that is enduring and has the potential to precipitate future hiring of women leaders.

Asher Lawson
Assistant Professor of Decision Science @INSEAD
Asher Lawson is an assistant professor of Decision Sciences at INSEAD. He holds a PhD from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and a BA from the University of Oxford. His research investigates the biases in how people make decisions, and how we can improve those decisions with targeted interventions. In this work, he has focused on two main topics: the errors in how people make decisions in general and the role of gender stereotypes in organizational decision making. More broadly he is interested in the factors that lead to people holding accurate perceptions—of information, decisions, and groups—and the integration of insights from behavioral science into analytical tools. His research has been featured in leading scientific journals such as the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, and Judgment and Decision Making.
