Women in the Workplace: How Men & Women See the Workplace Differently

A major new study by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Co. finds that the climb up the corporate ladder is very different for men and women.

Women in the Workplace 2016 - McKinsey Report on Women at Work

A new study shows just how different the workplace experience is for men and women. The report shows that men win more promotions, more challenging assignments and more access to top leaders than women do.

In contrast, the trek to the top is more complex and challenging – with less than half feeling that promotions are awarded fairly or that the best opportunities go to the most-deserving employees. A significant share of women say that gender has been a factor in missed raises and promotions. Even more believe that their gender will make it harder for them to advance in the future—a sentiment most strongly felt by women at senior levels.

The major new study of working women is one of the largest studies to date on this topic, with researchers gathering data on promotions, attrition and career outcomes at 132 global companies. 34,000 men and women at those companies were surveyed on their experiences at work.
