Research on Women at Work
Professor Gail McGuire's research found that because women are often in lower-status positions, they don't have the connections to the decision makers who help emplyees in career advancement. McGuire is quoted as saying: "Rising to the top comes in part from informal networks and it helps if your network contains high-status people."
It seems to me that this research has something to say to women in RT, a female dominated profession. That would be to get to know those who occupy higher-ranking positions -- and more importantly have them know you!
