Every year since 2016, these two organizations have teamed up to do the largest study of working women in America.

My top 3 take always from McKinsey & Company and Lean In’s recently released Women in the Workforce study:
1. Women leaders are leaving: for every one female director woman who gets promoted, two are choosing to leave instead.
2. Burnout is still disproportionately female: 43% of women leaders are experiencing burnout, vs 31% of men.
3. …. which will cause companies to lose out on future talent: 2/3rds of women under 30 would be more interested in advancing if they saw female leaders with a work-life balance they wanted
