Women in the Workplace 2017 is a comprehensive study of the state of women at all levels of corporate America. This research is part of a long-term partnership between LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company to give organizations the information they need to promote women’s leadership and foster gender equality.
This year 222 companies employing more than 12 million people shared their pipeline data and completed a survey of HR practices. In addition, more than 70,000 employees completed a survey designed to explore their experiences regarding gender, opportunity, career, and work-life issues.
The report includes six actions companies can take to level the playing field, and actions that are more common in top-performing companies. It is also critical that companies address the distinct barriers women of color face and get sufficient buy-in from men.
Do these six actions go far enough to support equity for women entering and advancing in career pathways? What's been your experience?
1. Make a compelling case for gender diversity
2. Invest in more employee training
3. Give managers the means to drive change
4. Ensure that hiring, promotions, and reviews are fair
5. Give employees the flexibility to fit work into their lives
6. Focus on accountability and results
