Women On Management Track Vastly Outnumbered By Male Counterparts, Study Shows

September 27, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Women, on average, are promoted and hired at lower rates than their male counterparts, with fewer women becoming senior managers, according to the report “Women in the Workplace 2016,” by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company. Aimed at helping employers promote female leadership and push gender equality in the workplace, the study also revealed that women at more senior levels of management women shift from line to staff roles. This causes a scarcity of women ending up on the path to becoming chief executive officers, the study revealed. Covering 132 companies with a total of more than 4.6 million employees, the study also included results of a survey of the companies' HR practices, as well as the results of a survey of more than 34,000 employees.
