While gender equality at the workplace is still nowhere near an acceptable level, it’s at its best it’s ever been. But there are still many barriers that restrict a woman’s advancement, especially at the upper reaches of management where it’s still largely dominated by men.
For example, while women make up 53% of entry-level positions, only 19% of top C-level executive positions are filled by women. Not only do they make less – women roughly earn 77 cents to every dollar made by men – they are also more likely to be passed over for high-profile assignments. But the good news is that millennial women are starting to change things, with many women entering the workforce with more education, and more concerned with career success – 66% to 59% – than men.
Here’s an infographic from HumanResourcesMBA.net that reveals some of the numbers around gender inequality that still exists in the modern workplace:
