#GAReads | Lean In survey of 64,000 employees finds US companies have 'made almost no progress' in advancing women
This year, 279 companies representing 13 million employees shared data for the study, and 64,000 employees were surveyed about their experiences.
The report found that the gap between men and women starts early: 54 percent of entry-level jobs go to men. Then for every 100 men promoted to manager, only 79 women are promoted. The gap widens further in the C-suite, where about one in five leaders is a woman, and one in 25 is a woman of color.
The study arrives in a year when the number of female CEOs of Fortune 500 companies declined 25 percent from the previous year.
