When Integrity is an Issue, Women Suited to Corporate Suite
Keywords: WOMEN WHITE COLLAR CRIME CORPORATE SECURITY
Description: All other factors being equal, women generally are better
suited for positions of trust and security than are men, research at
Michigan State University indicates.
When it's time to hire that next CEO, companies may have yet another
reason to consider taking down the glass ceiling and promoting a woman
into the job.
Research at Michigan State University indicates that, all other factors
being equal, women generally are better suited for positions of trust
and security than are men.
"Increasingly, women are holding corporate positions of power and
trust," said Judith Collins, an MSU professor of criminal justice and
industrial and organizational psychologist, who conducted the research.
"This research indicates that, from a security standpoint, they are
extremely well-suited to such positions. That's something that companies
need to consider as they hire for the future."
The research will be presented Nov. 9-11 at a joint conference of the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Research and Study Group on
Officer Selection and the International Military Testing Association
(IMTA) in Monterey, Calif. Addresses and research presentations will
focus on testing and behavioral measurement, occupational analysis,
manpower trends and organizational behavior. "
