Myth Busting: Women, Competitiveness, and Equity with Mary Rigdon, PhD

Despite what you think or have heard, there is no gender competitiveness gap. It’s a myth that women are not as competitive as men. Rigdon’s research makes a business and ethical case for greater inclusion, equity, and opportunity to place more women on boards and in C-­Suites.

Mary Rigdon is the director of the Center for the Philosophy of Freedom and an associate professor in the Department of Political Economy & Moral Science.
