A recent USA Today article cited a study by consulting firm McKinsey and Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg’s Leanin.org which stated that men are 30% more likely to be promoted from entry level to manager.

One of the practice areas in which our firm Global Diversity Marketing specializes, the Financial Services industry, has numbers that are even more dismal. 78% of financial advisors are men, making the funnel narrower from the start. We dubbed this “THE GREAT DISCONNECT” because nearly all financial household decisions are made or influenced by women!
