​Although women are increasing their global economic power and entering the workforce in greater numbers, true gender parity is still far from a reality. In 2023, for every 100 men promoted from entry level to manager, just 87 women were promoted. Coupled with the fact that they often desire more flexibility than leaders are willing to give, 60% of women are considering leaving their current roles in 2024.

The ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey sheds light on the world’s progress toward gender equality, with the goal of closing gaps and increasing productivity and engagement of global workforces. The 2024 data illustrates that, across the globe, gender equality initiatives are on track for less than half of roles. One-third of respondent organisations said that while Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) initiatives have been set, slow or little progress toward goals has been achieved.

Employers must accelerate progress to combat the continuing global talent shortage.

Read our new whitepaper, The World of Work Outlook for Women in 2024, to delve into the data around employers’ progress towards gender parity across the globe, along with key action points to facilitate a vibrant workforce of accomplished women.
