Women in the Workplace 2020

2020 is a year unlike any other in modern history. Of the many sectors of human life turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic, the American workplace has been particularly affected. The lines between work and home are blurred more than ever before, and the uncertainty many industries face have overwhelmed employees and their plans for the future. What do these shifts in workplace culture mean for women and other underrepresented groups, especially those traditionally affected by wage gaps, stagnant career mobility and discrimination?

The sixth annual “Women in the Workplace” report, composed by McKinsey & Co. in partnership with LeanIn.org, explores a completely new corporate environment that women must trek. The data set this year reflects contributions from 317 companies that participated in the study and more than 40,000 people surveyed on their workplace experiences.

Join a panel of experts at INFORUM, where they will discuss the unique results of this year’s survey and how corporations can seek solutions for intractable problems like gender bias and the wage gap in the journey to innovate work-from-home culture. Though the pandemic presents new challenges, this conversation will offer a way forward for companies through a time that could fundamentally shift the way we work and live.
