LeanIn and McKinsey & Company explored the current state of gender diversity in the workplace.

A survey of over 40,000 employees was conducted in 2022 along with a series of interviews with women of diverse identities, including women of color, LGBTQ+ women, and women with disabilities.

Key findings include:
1.) For every 100 men who were promoted from entry-level to manager level, only 87 women were promoted, and only 82 women of color were promoted.
2.) More female leaders have been leaving their companies.
— For every woman at the director level who got promoted to the next level, two female directors chose to leave their company.
3.) 37% of female leaders have had a coworker get credit for their idea, compared to 27% of men leaders.
— Female leaders were two times more likely than male leaders to be mistaken for someone more junior.
4.) Only 10% of women said they want to work mostly on-site compared to 18% of men.
— Many women pointed to remote and hybrid work options as one of their top reasons for joining or staying with an organization.
