In this Maclean’s video, GATE-funded researcher Hadiya Roderique discusses her personal experiences with the gender wage gap and what she thinks companies can do to address the issue.
This video is a part of a series of video interviews and articles published by Maclean’s for its February 2018 issue focused on pay equity.
Hadiya Roderique is currently a doctoral candidate in Organizational Behavior and Human Resources Management. Her funded project is called, “Race, Gender and Agency in Leadership: An Examination of Intersectional Identities and Agentic Penalties.” This research project will examine the effect of different agentic, leadership behaviors on evaluations of Black and White women leaders. The study predicts that unlike their White counterparts, Black women will be protected from agentic penalties where the described behavior aligns with stereotypes associated with their race and gender.
