A study conducted by Commerce and Business Administration Profes- sor Nancy Langton indicates that business managers are willing to sacrifice salary for time spent with the family. Langton surveyed980 Stanford University graduates who obtained their Masters of Business Administration degrees between 1973 and 1987. The purpose of the survey was to determine why men get paid more than women who occupy similar managerial positions. “We found that managers who put family ahead of work make less money,” said Langton. “That holds true for both men and women. It just so happens that, according to our survey,women are more likely than men to place a higher value on time spentwith family.” Early next year, Langton plans to survey approximately 1,OOO MBA grads from UBC who hold down managerial positions. “We plan to compare the findings between UBC and Stanford to see if we can get a senseof possible differences between Canadian and American managers,” she said. Preliminary UBC results are expected in July. The Stanfordgraduates were asked to rate the importance of such things See IMPORTANCE on Page 2 AISES chapter president lain Dickey stands beside MOA totem. . ”...... ,. . I.

The deadline for all 44 actions in the Plan is the current academic year, and to this end, initiatives are well underway. Indeed, the Plan documents that some Yours sincerely, actions now have been completed.
