Become a Volunteer

Every job involves non-promotable tasks. But research suggests that these tasks disproportionately fall on women. Across field and laboratory studies, researchers find that women volunteer for non-promotable tasks more than men; that women are more frequently asked to take such tasks on; and that when asked, women are more likely to say yes. This matters — if women are disproportionately saddled with work that has little visibility or impact, it will take them much longer to advance in their careers. Changing this dynamic should be a priority for any organization that wants to advance its most qualified employees. As your manager describes the project and asks for a volunteer, you and your colleagues become silent and uneasy, everyone hoping that someone else will raise their hand. The wait becomes increasingly uncomfortable. Our research suggests that this reluctant volunteer is more likely to be female than male. This can have serious consequences for women.
