Now is the right time for women to thrive. Despite the challenges that remain, we've never been more optimistic about the prospects for progress. After all, our businesses and societies urgently need to make progress on diversity today in order to create powerful and productive engines of economic progress tomorrow.
Our results confirm that organizations today are still far from achieving gender equality and, moreover, are not hiring, promoting, and retaining women at rates that would correct this imbalance within the next decade.
We believe we are at an inflection point and call on organizations worldwide to embrace the goal of gender equality and seek their own unique data-driven solutions to achieve that goal. We are optimistic and confident that leaders want to solve this - and will.
