Gutsy Women in the Workplace. Prepare for your future now!
It’s time to be gutsy. Break the pattern of women in the workplace falling behind and losing ground with every step in the world of business.
Women in the Workplace 2017, 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 222 companies and over 70,000 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.
