Laboratory experiments have demonstrated that men are significantly more willing to compete than women in stereotypically male tasks. This study explores whether relegating decisions to compete to someone else affects the gender gap in competitiveness (GGC) relative to decisions for oneself. We find the standard GGC when individuals make the decision to compete for themselves but not when someone else makes the decision for them, with higher competitive preferences among Asian than non-Asian subjects.
This event is open to all Oxy students, faculty and staff both in person and via Zoom.
