  13. 13. The Social Cost of Negotiating • Female candidates penalized more than male candidates for initiating negotiations (by male and female evaluators.) • Even when evaluators deemed female negotiators competent and gave them what they asked for, they didn’t want to work with them. • Men significantly more inclined to work with female candidates who accept their compensation offers without comment – described them as “nice” and “less demanding.” Source: “Social incentives for gender differences in the propensity to initiate negotiations: Sometimes it does hurt to ask,” Bowles, Babcock & Lai, June 2005

The Social Cost of Negotiating “Women get a nervous feeling about negotiating for higher pay because they are intuiting — correctly — that self-advocating for higher pay would present a socially difficult situation for them — more so than for men.” - Hannah Riley Bowles Harvard Researcher / Sr. Lecturer Source: “Why Women Don’t Negotiate Their Job Offers,” Harvard Business Review, June 2014
