EP107 – Gender differences in negotiation and policy for improvement

Women tend not to initiate negotiations over pay and conditions as frequently as men, and this contributes to the gender pay gap. In Economics Explored EP107, Dr Maria Recalde from University of Melbourne explains what researchers have learned about gender differences in negotiation and potential policy responses which could improve outcomes for women, such as salary history bans and increased transparency.
