In finance industry, millennials face gender inequality shock

Globally the number of females represented on financial services boards continues to grow, but a stagnancy at the executive level is disenfranchising millennials as they get to grips with a workplace stuck in its gendered past.¬†Oliver Wyman’s 2016 Women in financial services report revealed that financial services will not reach 30% female executive committee representation until 2048. ¬†Millennial women are facing the same problems as their counterparts in the 1980s and 1990s, just without expecting to. This leads to a ‘culture shock’ as they realise traditional gender roles continue to exist in the workplace.
