The pandemic impact on women’s careers

By Jessica Salerno-Shumaker, OSCPA senior content manager 

According to a recent McKinsey report, women in the workplace are more burned out than men and are not recognized for making substantial contributions to their organizations. 

Women in the Workplace is the largest study of women in corporate America and conducted by McKinsey in partnership with LeanIn.Org. The report analyzes the representation of women in corporate America, provides an overview of HR policies and programs and offers additional insights on the challenges working women face. 

Dr. Rupal Malani, MD, of McKinsey & Company will present the report’s findings at the July 21 Women, Wealth and Wellness Conference. Some of the research findings are below: 

  • Women’s representation has increased across the pipeline since 2016. But women (especially women of color) remain significantly underrepresented in leadership.
  • For every 100 men promoted to first level manager in 2020, only 86 women were promoted.
  • Employees with women managers are more likely to say that their manager has helped and supported them over the past year.
  • White employees often don’t recognize the importance of allyship actions that women of color say are highly meaningful.
