  • An Inside Look: Women in the Workplace 2017
    An Inside Look: Women in the Workplace 2017 Rachel Thomas, President of the Sheryl Sandberg & Dave Goldberg Family Foundation Recorded: Dec 14 2017 34 mins
    Join us for a look inside the Women in the Workplace 2017 study with Rachel Thomas, president of LeanIn.Org. Rachel will provide an overview of this year’s key findings, which show that women remain underrepresented at every level in corporate America, despite earning more college degrees than men for thirty years and counting. There is a pressing need to do more, and most organizations realize this: company commitment to gender diversity is at an all-time high for the third year in a row.

    Despite this commitment, progress continues to be too slow—and may even be stalling. One of the most powerful reasons for this is a simple one: we have blind spots when it comes to diversity, and we can’t solve problems that we don’t see or understand clearly.

    Women in the Workplace 2017 is a comprehensive study of the state of women in corporate America. This research is part of a long-term partnership between LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company to give organizations the information they need to promote women’s leadership and foster gender equality.

    This year 222 companies employing more than 12 million people shared their pipeline data and completed a survey of HR practices. In addition, more than 70,000 employees completed a survey designed to explore their experiences regarding gender, opportunity, career, and work-life issues. To our knowledge, this makes Women in the Workplace the largest study of its kind.
