Performance uncertainty and the level of female participation on tournaments

Project description

What makes a female want to complete in a tournament?

Research has shown that men and women respond differently when provided with the opportunity to compete, with women found to be less willing. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) GAPINCOMPETITION project aims to shed light on the conditions under which females become more competitive. In the ‘outgoing phase’, the project will examine how the decision to enter a tournament differs across genders, particularly when there is awareness of their own and the competitor’s skills. In the ‘ingoing phase’, the project will investigate what it would take, in terms of skills differences, to encourage females to enter a tournament. Project work can help increase the number of females in the competitive positions.
