Key findings include:  ​​​​​

  • Administration – the largest job category — was made up of 68% women as identified by our predictive diversity algorithm.  That’s 2.16x the number of men in this job category.
  • Healthcare and Nursing – the 5th and 10th largest job categories – are both dominated by women, with over 3x and 8x the number of women vs. men respectively.
  • The Military— the smallest of the Top 35 job categories – has an extremely low women gender ratio: 0.19x the number of men – resulting in a highly imbalanced power dynamic.
  • Software Engineering and IT – two critical STEM job growth areas, are also well under-represented by women.
