ManpowerGroup has published global research revealing that 97% of Millennials think they’ll be the generation to finally achieve equal opportunities for women in the workplace.
However, they are pragmatic about when it will happen, estimating it will take another 21 years. The most optimistic were established male leaders, who estimate the playing field will be level in the next 14 years, despite the fact they hold the power and influence at a time when progress is stalling.
The report, “Seven Steps to Conscious Inclusion: A Practical Guide to Accelerating More Women into Leadership,” takes a deep dive into generational, gender and geographical divides on attitudes to achieving gender parity and provides practical solutions to make progress faster. It draws on insights from more than 200 global leaders and identifies structural obstacles that need to be overcome.
