Women in the Workplace 2018 is a comprehensive study by Lean In and McKinsey & Company on the state of women in corporate America.
For the last four years, companies have reported that they are highly committed to gender diversity. But our report shows that company commitment has not translated into meaningful progress. Women continue to be vastly underrepresented at every level. For women of color, it’s even worse. Only about one in five senior leaders is a woman, and one in twenty-five is a woman of color.
Progress isn’t just slow—it’s stalled. In this meeting we will discuss why and explore possible solutions.
Women in the Workplace is focused on corporate America. But whether you work in that sector or not, you can use this Circle guide to start a conversation about how the findings from the report may apply to your organization and your experience of the workplace.
Activity 1: Leveling the playing field for hiring and promotions
Activity 2: Improving the experience for “Onlys” in the workplace
