Dr. Vesterlund is the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of the Department of Economics at the University of Pittsburgh and the Director of both the Pittsburgh Experimental Economics Laboratory (PEEL) and the Behavioral Economics Design Initiative (BEDI). Her research on the topic of gender differences in advancement has been featured by The New York Times, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The Washington Post, The Economist, Time Magazine and the Harvard Business Review. In her co-authored new book, The No Club: Putting a Stop to Women’s Dead-End Work, she documents that women are disproportionately asked and expected to take on assignments that go unrewarded, leaving women overcommitted and underutilized as companies forfeit revenue, productivity and top talent.
