Survey Finds Women Are Still Severely Underrepresented in US Companies

Although more women are joining the workforce now than in the past two decades, the annual Women in the Workplace survey from LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company revealed there’s still a huge gender gap when it comes to the overall representation of women in companies. In the 2018 survey, 279 companies with over 13 million employees released data. The results are jarring: 54 percent of entry-level jobs go to men. For every 100 men promoted to manager, only 79 women are promoted. Only one in five senior management executives is a woman, and only one in 25 is a woman of color. The good news? The survey found that more and more women are asking for the promotions and pay raises they deserve. The report’s advice? Set goals, report progress, and reward success in hiring practices. The exposing report has arrived timely following the recent California legislature that requires all publicly-held companies to have at least one woman on their board. It’s time for women to be equally represented within all company levels.
