The wage gap between men and women is persistent: Women earn 80% on average of what men earn. The career advancement gap between men and women is even larger— the current 6% of Fortune 500 CEOs who are female is a record. Gender differences in negotiation help to explain these broader gender gaps seen in organizations. I will present highlights from my research on gender differences in negotiation. I will also discuss evidence-based recommendations for overcoming apprehension concerning negotiation and obtaining better outcomes.
