Research: Men Get Credit for Voicing Ideas, but Not Problems. Women Don’t Get Credit for Either

“Employee voice, or speaking up with information intended to help one’s group, can improve performance, help teams come up with creative solutions, and avoid issues that might hold them back. But new research finds that speaking up only benefits men, and only when they speak up to offer ideas rather than point out problems. The author found that women were not helped by speaking up, regardless of whether it was about ideas or problems. “
