Meritocracy

Emilio J. Castilla, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Stephen Benard, Indiana University published “The Paradox of Meritocracy in Organizations,” in the December 2010 issue of Administrative Science Quarterly. This article won the 2010 Academy of Management’s Best Paper Award in Organizational Behavior.

“In this article, we develop and empirically test the theoretical
argument that when an organizational culture promotes meritocracy
(compared with when it does not), managers in that organization may
ironically show greater bias in favor of men over equally performing
women in translating employee performance evaluations into rewards and
other key career outcomes; we call this the ‘paradox of meritocracy.’”

Well. Can I just say 'hats off' to Margaret Court. I don't share her views on same sex marriage but I do think good on her for standing up and standing by her opinion. It's a good reminder that a bit more work is required to ensure all
Australians understand equality and so are willing to embrace it.
