Cataylst

Women intend to stay at their current employers three fewer years than men, while younger women and women of color intend to leave even sooner. Sixty-two percent of white women are satisfied with their current employers compared to 68 percent of men, while only 46 percent of women of color are satisfied. Sixty-seven percent of women, compared to 49 percent of men, cite women's commitment to personal and family responsibility as a barrier to advancement. Legal employers who provide women with the following options will have a better chance of attracting and retaining them: advancement opportunities, availability of mentors, professional development opportunities, and control over their work.
