Interview with Professor Razinskas on time pressure in gender-diverse teams
News vom 01.02.2023
Thanks to Joachim Herz Stiftung, Stefan Razinskas had the pleasure to talk with Jana Hemmersmeier and Tom Schmidtgen from Kölner Journalistenschule about his research on time pressure in gender-diverse teams that has been recently published in the Journal of Organizational Behavior. In their study, Stefan Razinskas together with Eric Kearney (University of Potsdam), Matthias Weiss (Radboud University), and Martin Hoegl (LMU Munich) found that gender-diverse teams require time to actually leverage the diverse perspectives, skills, and expertise of their members. Although these teams tend to outperform gender-homogeneous teams when being granted sufficient time, their members are more at risk of turning quiet and disengaging from the task when being pressed for time.
If you are interested in understanding how time (and the lack thereof) may tip the balance for gender diversity to harm team performance, please have a look into the video that you can find here and the open-access article that is free for download here.
