WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE: MEN ARE ALL SHOOK UP
Sexual integration of the workplace may be a lot harder on men than it is on women. According to research described in the newsletter Work in America, management professor Anne S. Tsui of the University of California at Irvine found that men in all-male work environments show the strongest commitment to their jobs, and their commitment declines as the percentage of women in their work groups rises.
By contrast, Tsui found that women are equally committed whether they are the only woman in a group or work in a largely female unit. She speculates that many men accustomed to working in all-male groups become uncomfortable as the presence of women increases.GENE KORETZ
