Building The Career You Want 

In the post-pandemic workplace, women leaders are leaving their companies and switching jobs faster than ever before. A 2022 McKinsey and LeanIn.org report found that for every director-level woman being promoted to the next level, two women directors are leaving. In what is being dubbed “the Great Breakup”, women are leaving in response to a number of systemic issues – such as being passed up for promotions or experiencing unfair treatment, lack of flexible work options and support from their managers, and fewer opportunities to advance.

The study found that the “broken rung” remains unfixed – women are not being promoted at the first step to manager: for every 100 men promoted from an entry-level role to a management role, only 87 women and 82 women of colour received the same opportunity. This disparity only widens at increasing levels of seniority. Women are also overworked – something exacerbated by the pandemic. The 2022 McKinsey and LeanIn.org report found that 43% of women leaders were burned out, compared to 31% of men leaders. Women are also driven to leave if their organization doesn’t prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).

This panel event will focus on how women are getting the careers they want. Our featured speakers are three trailblazing women in senior leadership roles within the transportation profession, who will share their experience building the careers they want, at each stage of their lives. There will be opportunity for Q&A and interactive discussion.
