Re: Dude/Not a Dude
Kelsey, This was a big topic at the WiC breakfst last year at BCE - how women don't apply for jobs unless they are completely qualified but men apply whether they are qualified or not. That's a good point that it might be related. I also think it has something to do with thinking before you speak - maybe men just don't do it...? Maybe the pressure to be poised wins over presenting an unfinished/unpolished idea? Lots of theories and contributors here. That book sounds interesting! Love that app though. ; )

Dude/Not a Dude
I'm not too surprised by the results of the study on how talkative men and women are at work. Why do you think women are sometimes more hesitant to speak up at the office? Fear of saying the wrong thing? I'm reading a book called "Woman Up!" and the author says that men are more likely to apply for jobs that they may not be qualified for, but women want to make sure they meet all the requirements in the job description before applying. Maybe the same goes for talking - women want to make sure they have all the facts and background knowledge first to feel like they're qualified to speak up.
