Well, maybe proving sexism in the workplace wasn’t Catalyst’s true motive behind this study, but it’s results brought me to that conclusion on my own. It’s a well-known fact that women are underappreciated in the workplace, in comparison to men, and now there is actual proof.
A recent study by Catalyst lets us know that men are more likely to get “hot jobs” or jobs that come with more responsibility, staff and double the budget than women. Women are also routinely passed over for international assignments.
Another aspect of the study stated that 53 percent of men get promoted after only completing a formal leadership program where only 37 percent of women get promoted after finishing the same program.
So what does this mean? To me, it means that mean are underappreciated in the work place and that we still live in a sexist corporate world.
What do you think?
