A 2018 study published by SAGE Publishing in the Journal of Human Relations revealed that not only exclusion by men but also self-imposed barriers including hesitation and gendered modesty that prevent women from networking as effectively as their male counterparts. Research revealed that women's tendencies to harbor moral concerns about 'exploiting' social ties causes them to under-benefit from networking activities.
Rachel Thomas, President of LeanIn.org says, "I think men are socialized from the get-go to understand that mixing business and friendship is what you do to get ahead. We, as women, aren't as comfortable doing that."
