Organizations often tout their flexible work options as one way they help women reach higher levels of responsibility, but is HR more likely to accept men’s reasons for needing the time?

    If I am reading the article correctly, there were separate requests from men and women. If you want to understand unconscious bias, you randomize the requests with stereotypically male and female names and then see if the apparent gender of the author changes how the exact same text is interpreted by the reader. Otherwise there could be another factor involved such as men in general only asked for a couple hours off early vs. women who generally asked for the entire day for example.

    The methodology of this study doesn't seem very sound.
