The current study used experimental methods in which adults with full-time jobs evaluated an organization that included information about the percentage of women in top management (53%, 23%, or 3%). The results showed that women were more attracted than men to an organization with the highest levels of women in top management (53% of management). The results also showed that women perceived more fairness than did men for the condition with women representing 53% of management. Women also perceived less fairness than did male participants when women only represented 3% of top management. The current research provides important implications that can inform organizations' efforts to attract women. In particular, the current research suggests that women use information about the sex composition of a company's top management positions, and that this information influences organizational attraction because they perceive such organizations to be fair for women.
