What’s in a name? It turns out, quite a bit in the world of business depending on your sex.

Once he came to this realization, they decided to do an experiment. Martin switched signatures with Nicole for two weeks to see if this was an isolated incident or if there was sexism in the workplace.

As for Nicole, she wrote about her experiences over on Medium and said, “I knew long before this experiment that my life at this company was always going to be harder. I knew this on my second day.”

Neither of them work for the company anymore, but it sparks an interesting discussion. Do you think men have an “invisible advantage” in the workplace? Have you experienced this yourself?
