Women, leadership and missed opportunities

In 2019, IBM launched the first Women in Leaders study. Our goal was to see if the attention and resources devoted to helping women develop professionally made a clear difference in narrowing the gender gap. After two years and a global pandemic, we asked ourselves: has something changed? more info

Our results show that yes, but not for the better. Despite increasing awareness of gender imbalance, the number of women in leadership positions has remained virtually unchanged over the past 2 years. Only 1 in 4 organizations lists the advancement of women as one of their top 10 priorities. And, perhaps most worryingly, fewer women are now being trained for leadership positions than there were in 2019.
