KMPG examined how women approach risk taking in their careers.

A survey of 2,012 professional U.S. women aged 18-64 was conducted in March 2018.

Key findings include:
–  The top contributor to professional success was “working hard” (73%) followed by “being detail-oriented” (45%) and “being organized” (45%).
–  Women were least confident about “asking for a higher salary” (35%) and “moving for a job” (35%).
–  40% of women said that “the opportunity to make more money” encouraged them to take more risks.
– 35% of women said that “a past success” encouraged them to take more risks
– 34% of women said they were encouraged to take more risks when “a leader encouraged me to go for it.”
