See you later, Betty Draper. Today's young, working women have high expectations for themselves and their careers.
According to an infographic from Accenture, Gen Y women have the most positive outlook at work compared with other generations. Sixty-six percent of millennials see a female role model at their company, and 65 percent believe women are equal in the workplace.
But despite this positive outlook, female millennials are less likely than their male counterparts to speak up on behalf of their careers.
- Less than half (45 percent) of women have asked for a raise, compared with 61 percent of men.
- One in four women do not actively discuss their career growth with supervisors.
- Forty-one percent of women feel they are underpaid.
