A mismatch between institutional conditions and trust.
Presented at: 12th Equality, Diversity and Inclusion International Conference (EDI 2019), Rotterdam, Netherlands.
In this study, we aim to unpack why information conveyed by high-status women are less trusted in the collaborative project setting. We theorize about the mechanism of gender-status mismatch – a cultural-cognitive mismatch between beliefs about gender and status hierarchies when a woman is associated with the high status. We set three hypotheses to test the negative effects of the mismatch on trust in women: (1) a woman who has a higher rank is considered a mismatch, (2) a woman who works for a high-status organization is considered a mismatch, and (3) a woman who has a higher network status is considered a mismatch.
