Macroeconomic issues of inflation, the two-year drain of a global pandemic, The Great Resignation, and more all exacerbate a consistent and critical concern for women in revenue: equity. When prices rise, work rules fluctuate, and work and family issues emerge, women are left guessing. What is my financial worth? Is my salary on par? Am I afforded the same choices? Will I be penalized for choosing one path over the other?
But these issues, which compound on everyone equally, are just the tip of the iceberg in an inequitable workplace. It’s been shown, again and again, that diversity efforts are both good for business and good for people. So why do many companies still leave women, minorities, and others behind when it comes to recruiting, promotions, salary increases, and opportunities?
