We recently honored Martin Luther King, Jr., for his vision and commitment to diversity. It therefore seems fitting to re-share McKinsey's Women in the Workplace 2018 study. Notably, "[C]orporate America has made almost no progress improving women's representation. Women are underrepresented at every level, and women of color are the most underrepresented group of all, lagging behind white men, men of color, and white women."
Whether you're in Human Resources, management, or otherwise empowered to be a change-maker, I encourage you to review this McKinsey article and strongly consider the six actions recommended to make progress on gender diversity. For our part, The Workplace Counsel will be providing seminars across the country this year to help employers by outlining the legal framework, advising on practical considerations, and promoting meaningful discussions related to pay equity, parental leave, and gender bias.
