Time to break the pattern of women falling behind and losing ground with every step in the world of business.
Women in the Workplace 2016, a study conducted by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey, elaborates on these patterns, provides some explanations for them, and suggests priorities for leaders seeking to speed the rate of progress. Data from more than 130 companies and over 34,000 men and women, include the following:
- Women remain underrepresented at every level in the business pipeline.
- Women negotiate for promotions and raises as often as men but face more push-back when they do.
- The challenge is even more pronounced for women of color.
