Women In the Workplace Study

resource image

Lean In and McKinsey and Company have developed a study, published in 2022, looking deeper into women in the workplace and the issues they may face.

Some of the research includes:

  • Women leaders want to advance, but they face stronger headwinds than men.
  • Women leaders are overworked and under-recognized.  
  • Women leaders want a better work culture.
  • Black women leaders are more ambitious but face greater barriers to advancement 
  • Women leaders are also overworked at home 
  • Some women face more bias and receive less support at work 
  • Women with traditionally marginalized identities often have a worse experience at work
