Title: Conflict, Cooperation, and the Role of Gender

Abstract: In some organizations people need to cooperate and compete with the same co-workers either at the same time or at different points in time. We show, with a lab experiment, that men and women respond differently to conflict induced by competition. Men increase and women decrease their cooperation with their former competitor. This finding could be a first step towards an additional explanation why women are underrepresented in top-positions.
