Why so Many Women Want to Change Careers
Seventy-three percent of women are interested in changing careers according to InHerSight’s recent study of 1,500 working women. That means right now, two-thirds of the female workforce is wondering whether they should not just leave their jobs but change industries entirely.
The reasons women want to leave their jobs illustrate the current state of our workforce. The top three are the need for more pay, the desire to find a career with a mission they believe in, and burnout.
If we look at salary alone, InHerSight found that only 11% of women are very satisfied with their pay, 83% believe companies aren’t doing enough to close the gender pay gap, and 49% say they’ve found out that a subordinate male coworker makes more money than they do.
