Are Men Getting Promoted Faster Than Women?

Source: https://www.reveliolabs.com/blog/slharvq9hjc2qxkhe9fijvzzci2huo

Upward mobility is a huge concern, not just for ambitious employees, but for the workplace environment. By analyzing cohorts of employees from 1990 to 2018, we see a significant gender seniority gap that seems to be becoming smaller for younger cohorts.

Below we show the current seniority level, measured in quintiles, of employees from cohorts from 1990 to 2018:

The gender seniority gap has been shrinking in recent years, but has still not reached parity:

By ranking the seniority level for every cohort, we can see that the younger cohort has a lower gender seniority gap than previous cohorts:

Takeaways:

  • While the gender wage gap is an issue that is fairly well understood, the gender seniority gap may be more problematic and deserves closer scrutiny.
  • While men appear to be promoted at a higher rate than women, that trend is also shrinking.
  • Even for employees who entered the workforce as recently as 2018, the seniority level of women is about 95% of the seniority level of men.
