Women in the Workplace 2017

McKinsey & Company

The 2017 edition of its “Women in the Workplace” report, published by McKinsey & Company since 2015 in association with LeanIn.Org, gives organizations the information they need to promote women in leadership positions and promote gender equality, based on research it has conducted in 222 companies in North America.

The 2017 study not only points to the challenges facing women as a consequence of gender inequality, but also looks in depth at the challenges linked to ethnic and racial differences.

To promote equality, the study draws a route map that companies should follow, with a series of initiatives linked to training in diversity and the work-life balance.

Finally, it concludes that it will become increasingly important in the future for workplaces to become inclusive, which will give them a clear competitive advantage over other companies.
