This study explored gender differences in goal conflict and framing effects of promotion conditions to examine possible contributions to the Women’s Leadership Gap. The relationships between participant sex, participant gender-role identity, and promotion conditions were assessed across four outcomes (desirability, likelihood to accept, tradeoff/sacrifice, and goal conflict). The total sample for the current study was 321 participants who contributed to the study in exchange for financial incentive through MTurk. Participants began the study by providing a list of 1-20 life goals, followed by completing the BEM Sex Role Inventory – Short Form. Participants then read one of three randomized promotion conditions (agentic, communal or neutral) and rated the promotion on desirability, likelihood to accept, tradeoff/sacrifice, and goal conflict. The predicted hypotheses were not supported in the current study. Implications and future research directions are discussed.
