Toronto — In recognition of International Women’s Day this Saturday, PwC today released a report highlighting the challenges and opportunities for organizations in creating a work environment for millennial women in which they can succeed.
Millennial women —born between 1980 and 1995— now make up a significant portion of the talent pool, and in addition, 40% of the global workforce overall is now female . Next generation diversity — Developing tomorrow’s female leaders discusses the expectations, goals and priorities of this demographic — as it continues to grow and make a bigger impact on today’s business environment.
Some highlights of the report include:
“Millennial women are about to make their mark on the workplace, and the report shows that organizations need to build an inclusive culture that can adapt to the expectations of this demographic,” says Lori-Ann Beausoleil, Chief Inclusion Officer at PwC. “These are our leaders of tomorrow, and taking note of their priorities will set businesses up well in attracting, developing and retaining the best-in-class.”
