Here’s a chilling statistic: Nearly 50% of men think that when just 1 in 10 senior leaders in their company is a woman, that’s sufficient. Even more chilling: 33% of women agree.
When so many people see a leadership team that’s only 10% women (50% of the population) and are satisfied with this breakdown, then it’s a sign that we’re too comfortable with the status quo.
So, what can we do to help break the cycle of ambivalence? First, read the Women in the Workplace 2017 study. Then, share it. Last, participate in the 2018 study to track our progress.
