Women are #leaningin to promotions!

So often the statistics and numbers about women in the workplace are depressing, irritating or downright maddening.  So we’re psyched to write about some happier numbers today.

New research from Accenture (based on an annual survey of global professionals in honor of International Women’s Day) shows a few promising things for women:

  • Most people believe there will be more female Chief Technology Officers by the time 2030 rolls aroundScreen Shot 2015-03-03 at 8.30.26 PM
  • Most people think their companies are preparing more women for senior leadership than the year before.

  • And, of course, 54% of both men and women asked for a promotion (as opposed to last year when fewer women than men asked for one).  You can only get what you ask for, so this is one very important way to tackle the pay gap or pay discrepancies between men and women.
  • Oh, and finally, to keep things real…the ultimate finding was that most people — men AND women — just don’t want to work.  If they could, the majority of people would just rather stay at home if they had a financial choice
