About the Book: All organizations have work that no one wants to do: planning the office party, attending to that time-consuming client, or simply helping others. In The No Club: Putting an End to Women’s Dead-End Work, Lise Vesterlund, Ph.D., the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Economics at the University of Pittsburgh, along with three colleagues from Carnegie Mellon University -- the original “No Club” -- document that women are disproportionately asked and expected to take on these tasks that inevitably go unrewarded, leaving women overcommitted and underutilized as companies forfeit revenue, productivity, and top talent. The book reveals how their subsequent groundbreaking research uncovered that women everywhere are unfairly burdened with “non-promotable work,” a tremendous problem we can—and must—solve.

Prof. Vesterlund's new book The No Club: Putting a Stop to Women’s Dead-End Work, co-authored with colleagues Linda Babcock, Ph.D., Brenda Peyser, MFA, and Laurie Weingart, Ph.D. (all from Carnegie Mellon University), documents that women are disproportionately asked and expected to take on assignments that go unrewarded, leaving women overcommitted and underutilized as companies forfeit revenue, productivity, and top talent.
