The Paula Principle: how and why women work below their level of competence

Friday 14 December 2018 • 11.30am to 12.30pm
Room 1.20, Dugald Stewart House, 3 Charles Street, Edinburgh  
Tom Schuller

The Paula Principle is ‘most women work below their level of competence’.  It is the mirror image of the famous Peter Principle – that ‘every employee rises to his level of incompetence’.  In every OECD country women now outperform men educationally, at almost every level;  and they go on learning more as adults.  But pay and career paths do not reflect this increasing competence gap.  Tom Schuller will present the reasons underpinning the Paula Principle, and explore what might be done to address it.

Topic to be confirmed

Tuesday 5 February 2019: 12.30pm to 1.30pm
