4) If an employee is satisfied and motivated, his job performance will increase. [Causal hypothesis]. (change in IV affect DV) 5) Satisfaction and motivation does not contribute to job performance [Null hypothesis] (IV not affecting DV at all). 6) In some scenario skill required are not essential to increase job performance.

Not finding an influential mentor in the System that is willing to help them, lack of an informal network with influential colleagues, lack of role models, and the dearth of high-visibility projects results in dissatisfaction experienced at work and the minority women ultimately decide to leave the organization. Of course, not all minority women quit the system. Only those who have the wherewithal (for example, resources and self-confidence) to start their own business leave the organization.
