On 9/27/21, LeanIn and McKinsey & Company released the 7th Women in the Workplace report, the largest study of the state of women in corporate America. The report makes it very clear: women have been pushed to their limit. But despite the stress and exhaustion of the past year, women leaders are still stepping up.
Women leaders are doing more to support their teams and advance DE&I efforts. They are also more likely to be allies to women of color. Yet this critical work is going unrecognized and unrewarded by most companies, and that has dangerous implications. There’s a risk that the work women leaders are doing will be relegated to a new form of “office housework”- work that contributes to the business but isn’t formally recognized in performance reviews, typically does not lead to advancement, and isn’t usually compensated. As a result, companies risk losing the very leaders they need right now.
Join us for this ShowMe50 Power Lunch when we will cover the key insights from this study of 423 companies across the United States and Canada, building on similar research conducted annually by McKinsey & Company and LeanIn.Org since 2015, as well as similar research from McKinsey & Company in 2012. In addition, more than 65,000 employees from 88 companies were surveyed on their workplace experiences.
It’s going to be a great discussion when we share our experiences and plan our success strategies.
