Research at Reading University has shown women leaders are more likely to censor the language they use at work to avoid being judged.
Students interviewed 10 senior female and 10 senior male leaders from FTSE 500 companies about how they speak to colleagues.
They found that women consciously police what they say so they neither sound too feminine, and therefore weak, nor too masculine, and therefore assertive.
Link in the title. I thought this research was an interesting counterbalance to the Deborah Cameron book we're reading for the next meeting.
