From Around the Web: Harvard Gender Equity Case Study

Harvard Business School is consistently ranked as one of the best business schools in the world. Yet America’s premier business training ground was faced with a seemingly irreversible problem. Every year, women with the same test scores and grades as their male counterparts were falling behind. Women were also less likely to speak up in class and even female professors, of whom there were few, felt intimidated and hassled by male students.

With this in mind, Harvard Business School launched an experiment in gender equity, with the idea that – if they could turn around their record on women – they could have an impact at other business schools, at companies populated by Harvard alumni and in the Fortune 500, where only 21 chief executives are women.

The New York Times recently published an article exposing the gender dynamics of Harvard Business School and the results of its two-year social experiment.

We want to hear from you: In what ways do you think Harvard Business School’s experiment in gender relations will or will not change its students’ lives after they graduate?
