Why does the gender gap still persist and how can we close it? In 2019, the gap between the percentage of women and the percentage of men in the workforce was the smallest on record. But despite these statistics, women remain underrepresented in positions of power and status, with the highest-paying jobs still remaining the most gender-imbalanced. The persistence of these inequalities begs the question: Why haven't we made more progress?
Join Colleen Ammerman and Boris Groysberg as they discuss their new book, Glass Half-Broken: Shattering the Barriers That Still Hold Women Back at Work, and reveal the pervasive organizational obstacles and managerial actions that create gender imbalances – as well as important strategies both leaders and businesses can use to break these barriers down.
