Andrea Courey talks about granola, entrepreneurship and compassion

Wed, 2017-05-17 12:50

Andrea Courey (BCom’82) was newly divorced, with three kids to feed and no money in the bank when she started Grandma Emily’s Granola. She credits her BCom education with giving her the tools she needed to get through the early days of her business, but notes that real-world experience is a very different thing than classroom knowledge.

Gender bias hits male managers in female-stereotyped jobs

Wed, 2017-05-17 12:39

A new study co-authored by Desautels Professor Laura Doering looks at the role gender played in missed payments at a microfinance bank.

What the authors discovered was that clients who associated their bank manager’s job as a “female” role were more likely to miss payments. In a wider sense, male managers tend to enjoy less authority when filling a job that was previously done by a woman.
