Professor Lisa Leslie is interviewed about her new research on a pay premium for high-potential women in companies with diversity goals
Excerpt from Harvard Business Review -- "Our findings document a pay premium for high-potential women that is driven by the widespread adoption of organizational diversity goals. Although diversity is a strategic goal in many organizations, women remain severely underrepresented in executive positions. As a result, executive women offer significant value to these organizations and receive a pay premium relative to executive men. We find that the female premium applies to all high-potential women in companies with diversity goals — both those who have already reached the executive ranks and those deemed likely to do so in the future."
