Women in the Workplace
One in every four women in America considers quitting her job or downshifting her career. This is the data shown by the annual report "Women in the Workplace" by McKinsey & Company and LeanIn.Org. The report also shows that mothers, Black women and women in senior leadership have been hit worst by the pandemic.
"The events of 2020 have turned workplaces upside down, - the report says. - Companies risk losing women at all levels of management—but they also have an opportunity to build a better workplace...
Two things are clear: Companies need to address the heightened challenges women are facing, and they need to better support Black women. If companies act now to build a more equal workplace, they can prevent millions of women from leaving their jobs or downshifting their careers. If companies can rise to the challenges the Covid-19 crisis has thrown into high relief, we may be laying the foundation for a more flexible and empathetic workplace for everyone."
