Annie Jowers MGMT 3401 HW 3 What are some specific individual and organizational steps that could help reduce sex segregation? Individual steps that could help reduce sex segregation starts with awareness and assertiveness. Knowledge of sex and gender issues is the first step in making a change. We can raise awareness by everyone sharing what he or she knows about gender segregation and inequalities with friends, family, and coworkers. According to Babcock and Laschever, when employers’ think that women deserve and will settle for less, women get paid less. Women’s failure to negotiate for what they deserve contributes to the wage gap. To avoid pay disparities associated with sex segregation, women should focus on careers that pay well, utilize their interests and skills like task orientation and assertiveness, that are traditionally associated with men.
