Anyway, during one of my research frenzies, I came across a film discussing the gender gap hosted by the leading public auditing firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers. It's a thorough piece because it takes an international look at the issue. Women from just about every corner of the earth were invited to the panel to discuss the complexities female professionals face in the workplace. It highlights the challenges we face together although distance separates us. The film was produced in 2009 but discusses women's roles in the workplace through 2050. A link to add to this site was never located. Some key issues will be highlighted below, along with a link to PwC's site.
Among the topics covered, here were the ones I found most interesting:
- What makes women leave the workforce?
- Is enough being done to accommodate the challenges women face?
- Does perception of abilities play a role in creating that gender gap?
- Would mentoring catered to women help them progress in the workplace?
Here's a link to the film. It's 27 minutes long, but there is also a transcript readers can skim through:
