New Research Offers Evidence That Moving Up the Corporate Ladder Is More Difficult for Women With Children

SchipaniCindyNew research led by Cindy Schipani, a business law professor and the Merwin H. Waterman Collegiate Professor of Business Administration in the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, presents evidence that proves that it is more difficult for women with children to advance up the corporate ladder.

“Our results show that in the U.S., women who have high career attainment also tend to be single and/or without children,” Professor Schipani reports. “We also found that mentoring boosts results for women with dependents to overcome challenges to networking.”

The research is scheduled to be published in an upcoming edition of the UCLA Women’s Law Journal.

Professor Schipani is a graduate of Michigan State University and the University of Chicago School of Law.
