Study participants40 women and 41 men from an MBA programme each took part intwo tenminute long, interactive role plays with two women managersresearch confederates, one apparently pregnant and the other not. Theparticipants impressions of the manager were tapped using anauthordeveloped questionnaire and brief interviews. Interactive datawere analysed to determine the nature of the expression of emotion andideas. The results show that participants had more negative impressionsof and lower satisfaction with the pregnant manager than with themanager who was not pregnant, and initiated more social conversationwith the former than with the latter.
