UF: Why ‘managerial derailment’ affects women more than men

Gender bias can influence how supervisors view a manager’s long-term potential, a new study shows.

University of Florida management professor Joyce Bono examined a phenomenon called managerial derailment, where a seemingly up-and-coming manager gets fired, demoted, or doesn’t advance as expected. She found that supervisors can have subtle, even subconscious differences in expectations for the behavior of male and female managers, which can have costly consequences for women in the workplace, most notably the loss of mentorship.
