Corporate Membership

In Defend Your Research: What Makes a Team Smarter? More Women, Thomas Malone, a management professor at MIT, created teams of people aged 18 to 60, had them take IQ tests, and then issued them a series of problem sets. Surprisingly, those with the highest IQs did not perform the best - but the teams with the most women, did.

"The standard argument is that diversity is good and you should have both men and women in a group," he told the Harvard Business Review in June 2011. "But so far, the data show, the more women, the better."

We encourage you to explore how WITI can help you attract and retain talented, tech savvy women: call 800-334-WITI (9484) or contact Michele Weisblatt, EVP Corporate partnerships: michele@corp.witi.com
