Still other women didn't even make it past the first phone interview. When Google's stats-sifters examined these candidates' interview responses, they found that on average women were less likely to boast about their accomplishments over the phone than men, which led interviewers to assume they hadn't done anything. Interviewers are now asked to pay closer attention and take better notes.
They needed stats to tell them this? For those who haven't simply noticed during their course of existence that men are taught to sell themselves and women are taught to demure and be excessively moest, this fact gets mentioned in 99% of all "why women still aren't quite earning what men do" type articles.
