Forbes, "Why Women Professionals Must Keep Fighting"

Earlier this week, LinkedIn published a study demonstrating that, in the finance industry, women see a gender opportunity gap – and men don’t.

The study, done in partnership with CNBC and particular to one economic sector, demonstrates how much of the business world operates: through a myopia which prevents people from seeing (and working to fix) problems that don’t affect them. The numbers are telling; women only make up 17% of leadership in the industry, and the overwhelmingly male population is more likely to believe gender discrimination is receding; men are far more likely than women to believe promotions are given at equal rates for men and women, by a margin of 74% to 47%; and 75% percent of men, as opposed to 40% of women, believe men and women are paid the same for the same job.
