Apparently, we won’t see the workplace gender gap close in our lifetimes. The World Economic Forum has just released the 2016 Global Gender Gap Report. More than a decade of data reveals that progress is slow and the gaps won’t close any time soon.
The report quantifies the magnitude of gender disparities and tracks progress over time, with a specific focus on the relative gaps between women and men across four key areas: health, education, economy and politics. The 2016 Report covers 144 countries.
The US ranks 45/144 and has a parity score of .722/1.
