Dr. Maria Droganova, Assistant Professor in the Management Department, recently presented her research at the Annual Conference for Women in Economics at Princeton University.

Her research paper, "Women Working for Women: Career Advancement and the Gender Wage Gap in the U.S. Federal Government," tracked careers of civilian employees from 1988 to 2011. She found that in offices where all supervisors were men, male wages were on average 10.6 percent higher than female wages. In offices where all supervisors were women, the wage gap in favor of men disappeared and became 3.2 percent higher in favor of women, due to a 7.1 percent increase in female wages and a 6.7 percent decline in male wages.
