How Women and Men Decide: What’s True, What’s Not, 

and Why it Matters

Therese Huston, Ph.D., has a mission: to make the workplace as successful for women as it is for men. Therese is a cognitive scientist at Seattle University and The New York Times calls her book, How Women Decide “required reading on Wall Street.”

Therese uses cutting-edge research in social psychology, economics, and neuroscience to debunk popular myths about how men and women make decisions. Therese received her BA from Carleton College and her M.S. and Ph.D. in cognitive psychology from Carnegie Mellon University.

She’s written for the New York Times and Harvard Business Review, her work has been featured in Forbes and the Financial Times, and she’s been interviewed on NPR.  Last fall, she gave her first TEDx talk. Microsoft, Amazon, the U.S. State Department, the Cleveland Clinic, and Harvard Business School have all asked Therese to lead workshops on how to create more inclusive workplaces for women.
