Shared Childcare Responsibilities Increase Female Progression
6 December 2016
New research from Avenir Consulting, the 30% Club and Henley Business School has found that mothers are far more likely to progress in the workplace if childcare responsibilities are shared equally by both partners. The survey of fathers found that where fathers take an equal or main role in childcare 47% of female partners have progressed their careers, compared to 26% of female partners who are the main care givers progressing.
The findings come as the CMI finds that 480,000 women will be missing from middle management positions by 2024 due to gender imbalance in the workplace.
