A 2013 Gallup poll showed that women would prefer males bosses to female ones:
Both men and women prefer a male boss. More than half of men say the gender of their boss makes no difference, but those who have a preference favor a male boss by an 11-point margin. Women are more likely than men to have a preference, with higher proportions expressing preferences for each gender of boss, though women choose a male over a female boss by a 13-point margin.
On The Daily Circuit, we discuss how women can support one another in the workplace and help each other succeed.
