  • The industries with the highest inclusion of female employees are Healthcare, Human Resources and Retail
  • Women showed overall greater rates of internal mobility within the same company than men
  • White employees have overrepresentation in managerial roles compared to other racial and ethnic groups. Asian employees, in particular, are underrepresented in managerial roles.
