Is Sandberg’s Ambition Gap for Women Really a Likeability Gap?

Sands Anderson PC

Bloomberg Businessweek posted an interesting video featuring Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook, Inc. talking about how women don’t identify themselves as “ambitious” and don’t seek leadership roles in business organizations. Check it out here.

She analyzes what creates this “ambition gap” that prevents women from becoming CEOs or seeking other leadership roles. Part of it is a perception that powerful and successful women aren’t likeable. Part of it is that women are actively discouraged from being ambitious at an early age. Part of it is that women still take on the lion’s share of work at home, even when they work full-time outside the home as well.
