Title: The No Club: Putting a Stop to Women's Dead-End Work


All organizations have work that no one wants, low impact assignments like proofing documents, onboarding new staff, screening interns, attending to that time-consuming client, or simply helping others. Women are disproportionately asked and expected to do this “non-promotable work,” which leaves them overcommitted and underutilized as companies forfeit revenue, productivity, and top talent.

Lise Vesterlund, professor of economics and co-author of The No Club, will explain what non-promotable work is, how and why it affects women disproportionately, and what we can do to make smarter decisions about the work we take on. She will also address how organizations and managers can benefit from reassessing how they assign and reward work.
