Pat Milligan's talk will cover the findings of Mercer’s newly released When Women Thrive research report, representing over 640 organizations from 42 countries, covering 3.2 million employees in which 1.3 million are women. This is the 2nd version of this report, and our platform has grown to be the largest of its kind and while we are experiencing a lot of progress, the reality is what organizations are doing is simply not enough. Some key findings include that women continue to be underrepresented at all career levels, current hiring, promotion and retention rates are insufficient to create gender equality by 2025, and organizations are failing to build future female talent pipelines. The findings are consistent across all regions, proving this is a growing, global issue. The report offers tools and recommendations for organizations to take action to really move the needle.
