Interview with Antti Kauhanen on gender differences in corporate hierarchies

Some of the questions asked by IZA World of Labor Editor-in-Chief Daniel S. Hamermesh include: 

- Why is there a pay gap between men and women?
- You mention human capital differences and yet in most rich countries women are now more educated than men. So, why should that matter anymore?
- Very few people outright discriminate against women anymore, it is rather unconscious. Can you give me examples of that and what can be done about it?
- I know you can do blind auditions for orchestras but how can we formalize hiring for office jobs?
- Could you also look at women who have been single all their lives compared to men who have been single all their lives – is there a difference there too?
- What does “make workplaces more family-friendly”? What does that entail, can we achieve that?
- In the last year with Covid-19, looking at the data, it seems that working from home has not had a positive effect on women’s careers. Why is that?
- Covid-19 on the impact on the gender pay gap: is it here to stay or just a passing phenomenon?
