Title:               Emergent and Structural Perspectives on Gender Inequity                                                                                   

Abstract: More than five decades after the passage of Civil Rights legislation, gender differences in employment outcomes remain chronic and pervasive. Applying a multilevel lens, this presentation will highlight ‘bottom-up’ or emergent processes in groups as well as ‘top down’ or structural constraints that explain gender differences in employment outcomes. Emergent processes refer to dyad-level  interactional processes  within work groups that translate into differences in performance-related outcomes between men and women working in these groups. Structural constraints refer to macro-level contextual factors that shape differences in performance and reward outcomes between men and women.  The presentation will cover some recently completed and ongoing work to propose an agenda for future gender research in organizations across multiple levels of analysis.
