According to a survey conducted by McKinsey & Co., millennial women are facing the same gender parity in the workplace as their predecessors.
While the workplace has undergone several changes and continues to evolve, the issue of gender and its effects lingers. The survey, which questioned 34,000 workers, found that 23% of millennial women believe their gender has thwarted them from getting ahead.
Additionally, the ambition gap, or the share of women and men saying they want to be part of the C-Suite, is 14 points, whereas the previous generation was 17 points. The majority of survey respondents attributed this to stress and pressure affecting their appetite for such positions.
On the bright side, however, today’s freelance economy provides alternative solutions to achieving success outside the bounds of the corporate structure.
