The Great Breakup: Women In The Workplace 2022 Study
This originally appeared on Forbes on October 18, 2022.
The Women in the Workplace 2022 study is the largest study of women in corporate America, produced by a joint effort of LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company. Report co-authors, LeanIn.Org's co-founder and CEO, Rachel Thomas, and McKinsey's Senior Partner, Lareina Yee, shared their insights and interpretation of the findings. The top-line conclusion? We're in the midst of a great breakup.
"For the first time in all the years I've been working this report, women leaders — directors, vice presidents, and senior vice presidents — are walking away at higher rates than men," says Yee. "Why are they doing that? Because women are ambitious. They are breaking up with companies that can't offer leadership opportunities."
