A new study has found that women in science are less likely to get a job because of their gender than men.
The study was conducted by scientists from the University of Texas, the University at Buffalo and Harvard University.
They examined data from more than 6,000 people between the ages of 16 and 77.
The researchers asked participants to describe their workplace in order to understand why they weren’t employed.
Women were more likely than men to say they were employed because they were either managers or supervisors.
Men were less likely than women to describe themselves as managers or managers.
They also found that a higher number of women than men were employed at a company that had no managers, although they weren, on average, better-qualified than their male colleagues.
The authors say they expect that women may be more likely to be in positions of leadership at companies where they are less experienced or less qualified than men because they are more likely be viewed as being “more likely to succeed”.
“We see that in this context, women have been more likely as managers to be promoted, but the gap in outcomes between women and men has been narrowing,” said the study’s lead author, Dr Julie H. Chivers, an associate professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University.
The findings are published in the Journal of Women and Work.
Dr Chivers said that women’s gender differences in career choices were not just limited to the workplace.
They were also in the workplace in general.
“They were in many different settings,” she said.
“I think that’s why women may have the disadvantage in the office and that’s also why we see that women are not getting promoted as much as men.”
The study also found women were more successful at career transitions.
Men who worked in an office were more than twice as likely as women who worked at home to move to a new job within six months of leaving the same job.
Dr H.C. Chiver said the findings highlighted the importance of workplace diversity in the advancement of women.
“It seems to be the case that women who are less qualified tend to have less impact on their careers,” she explained.
“For example, there are many people who are female who are more qualified than their peers, but their careers have not progressed as much, or at all, because of that.”
For the study, the researchers looked at data from 5,000 respondents between the years of 1988 and 2011.
The data was collated from the General Social Survey, a longitudinal survey that collects data on Americans age 18 and over.
