Professor Lisa Leslie's research on high-potential women
— May 26, 2017
Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "Lisa Leslie, a professor at New York University, looked at the highest-paid executives in S&P 1500 companies and found what might be called a 'diversity premium,' in which women at the top earn more than men in these top-paid positions at big companies. The reason, Leslie told the Harvard Business Review, is that companies that have adopted organizational diversity goals — something common at the largest companies — are more likely to pay extra for high-potential women."
