Not Quite Shocking

May 2, 2022

Telecom providers–and other companies across many industries–are boosting their efforts to increase the representation of women. They are focusing on two targets: hiring women into entry-level roles and establishing parity in the C-suite.

However, McKinsey research found that many organizations are missing the mark at a key moment: equitable advance in early promotion. Across all industries and roles, only 86 women are promoted to managers for every 100 men at the same level. In technical roles—specifically, engineering and product management—just 52 women are promoted to managers for every 100 men. As a result, women are leaving these technical fields in high numbers.
