Abstract

The women in management literature contend that mentorship and sex‐role style affect women's career success and ultimately earnings. We use data from the public accounting profession (N = 833) and a human capital wage decomposition model to examine the effect of mentorship and sex‐role style on male‐female wages and wage differentials. The results suggest that career mentorship modestly increases only women's earnings. However, sex‐role style was found to significantly interact with gender to affect earnings and earnings differentials.
