How Gen Y Women Fare in Today’s Workplace #Infographic

By Stephanie Buck – @StephMBuck
In tandem with International Women’s Day –  – on March 8, let’s explore the state of today’s Gen Y woman in the contemporary workforce.
While today’s Gen Y woman (aged 18-29) encounters more visible female role models in the workplace, she sometimes struggles to assert herself when it comes to her career.
According to the data, when surveyed, 54% of women proactively managed their careers, compared to 64% of men. And 31% of Gen Y women feel their careers are stagnant.
On the other hand, many women in this age group prioritize work/life balance, admitting that they have stayed with their employers longer due to flexible work schedules.
In many respects, women have a potential leg-up on men when it comes to the workforce. Women use social media more than men to connect with friends, family and co-workers.
And between 1997 and 2011, the number of women-owned firms increased by 50%, leading many to posit that women are powerfully impacting entrepreneurship.
