LOTTE BAILYN is a professor of management (in the Organization Studies Group) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School of Management and Co-director of the MIT Workplace Center. In her work, she has set out the hypothesis that by challenging the assumptions in which current work practices are embedded, it is possible to meet the goals of both business productivity and employees’ family and community concerns and to do so in ways that are equitable for men and women. Her most recent book—Beyond Work-Family Balance: Advancing Gender Equity and Workplace Performance (Jossey Bass, 2002) with Rhona Rapoport, Joyce K. Fletcher, and Bettye H. Pruitt—chronicles a decade of experience working with organizations that supports this hypothesis while showing how difficult it is to challenge workplace assumptions. She serves on the National Academies Committee on Women in Science and Engineering.
