A report by Lean In discusses the state of black women in corporate America.
The State of Black Women in Corporate America draws heavily on Lean In and McKinsey & Company’s annual Women in the Workplace study. Since 2015, more than 590 companies employing more than 22 million people, along with a quarter of a million individual employees, have participated in Women in the Workplace. To our knowledge, this makes it the largest study on the state of women in corporate America, and the largest study on the experiences of women of color at work. Additional sources for this report include Lean In’s 50 Ways to Fight Bias program, a collaboration with Stanford’s VMware Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab and Paradigm, and research conducted by Lean In in partnership with SurveyMonkey.
