The headlining news on the NYTimes is causing quite a kerfuffle over at HBS. In fact, Kathleen McGinn (quoted in the NYTimes article) later expressed her reaction to the article in a letter to the HBS doctoral students: "It doesn’t tell the complete story – HBS is much more multifaceted than the author conveys. But it does tell part of the story – HBS is working to eliminate the historical gender grade gap, and the gap is nearly gone; HBS is working to improve the culture in our community, through new classes such as FIELD and by aggressively promoting norms and behaviors that foster cooperation and respect. Perhaps the biggest omission in the story, from my perspective, is that it fails to tell how the MBAs themselves demanded change and led the charge, how a few women MBAs exposed the inequities, analyzed their root causes, and presented their recommendations to the school’s administrators. Those recommendations sowed the seeds for many of the changes discussed in the article."
