Women Business Leaders Breakfast Series - In Person

September 9, 2022
07:30 AM - 09:00 AM
James Laughlin Music Center, Chatham University Shadyside Campus
Networking & Breakfast: 7:30AM-8:00AM. Speaker/Panel: 8:00AM-9:00AM

All organizations have work that no one wants, low impact assignments like proofing documents, onboarding new staff, screening interns, attending to that time-consuming client, or simply helping others. Women are disproportionately asked and expected to do this “non-promotable work,” which leaves them overcommitted and underutilized as companies forfeit revenue, productivity, and top talent. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Brenda Peyser, Lise Vesterlund and Laurie Weingart will discuss how to identify non-promotable tasks, help you learn how to make small, yet significant, changes to your workload, and make savvy decisions about the work you take on. They’ll also discuss how organizations can change the way they assign and reward work to level the playing field.
Brenda Peyser held corporate and academic leadership positions, most recently at Carnegie Mellon, where she served as associate dean at the Heinz College. Lise Vesterlund is a professor of economics at the University of Pittsburgh and director of the Pittsburgh Experimental Economics Laboratory and the Behavioral Economic Design Initiative. Laurie Weingart is a professor of organizational behavior at Carnegie Mellon and served as chief academic officer (interim) and as senior associate dean at the Tepper School of Business. Together with Linda Babcock, they are the authors of “The No Club – Putting a Stop to Women’s Dead-End Work”
