Why are brunettes more likely to be in senior management?

And the blondes get all the dirty jobs like programming in IT, organising meetings and wiping bums?

Re: Why are brunettes more likely to be in senior management?

I remember hearing of a movement in the 1960's where they tried to empower women with equal opportunities......

...... Blonde women Vs Brunettes ?????

Geeez, this just shows women are never pleased.

This thread is the equivalent of holding a lit firework, or a grenade with the pin out..Staying well clear.

Although...Perhaps it's something to do with the perception of blondes being a bit dizzy.

Obviously I never judge people by hair colour, but the media and society isn't doing them many favours.

Statistically, men tend to have dark hair.

Re: Why are brunettes more likely to be in senior management?

Apparently tall women also have the advantage for more senior positions so if you are brunette and leggy, it seems it's in the bag.

Sadly that memo didn't reach me and I am a bum-wiper...

Re: Why are brunettes more likely to be in senior management?

So I'm in SM and my hair's red - does that count as brunette?

Re: Why are brunettes more likely to be in senior management?

Are we mass debating over female blonde / brunette people or male blonde / brunette people? Just so I know I'm not in the wrong thread

You can safely Mass debate Uncle max.

If the thread was about Male hair, it would be about "Men with hair Vs Men without".......... as you know, we don't give a toss.

So it is our responsibility to provide the correct role models for our daughters:


(cant quite understand why she is wearing such a short skirt...
and the phone is a bit retro...
must be an older model.)

i've said it before, and i'll say it again. i think it is just plain wrong to limit oneself to half the population.

If you think you have a valid contribution to make, feel free.

@mirfield.. be aware that you may be playing alone as your Lost friend seems to still be boycotting..

Love the CEO Barbie I'd put her in a low cut top to match the mini skirt.

pff smart blondes have househusbands to do that. Office is way easier and more fun.

And actually, almost all women in senior positions in the company I work for are blonde. Some even natural.
