Although a great deal of empirical research has focused on women's access to managerial positions, much less work addresses what changing patterns of access mean for larger patterns of gender inequality. Are female managers agents of change, reducing inequality among their subordinates, or are they merely cogs in the machine whose managerial presence has little effect on inequality? This talk will summarize current research in this area, offer new evidence from analyses of U.S. private sector workplaces, and conclude with what it all may mean for diversity in work organizations.
