Less Than Half Of Gen Y Women Have Asked For A Raise

Who needs money, anyway.
With International Women’s Day upon us, it makes sense that we’d stop and take stock of where Generation Y women are, career-wise. And, according to new information from Accenture, it’s a mixed bag. The Gen Y-ers (which Accenture defines as those born from the late ’70s to the early ’90s) feel that women have greater parity in the workplace. Unfortunately, that parity hasn’t changed the fact that we’re all broke.
So, here’s the good news:
– 66 percent of Gen Y women say they “see visible female role models at their company.”
– 65 percent of the respondents believe that women are equal in the workplace.
And, yes, there’s bad news:
– Just 45 percent of Gen Y women have asked for a raise, compared with 61 percent of their similarly aged male counterparts. And yet a full 41 percent say they feel underpaid.
– 31 percent of Gen Y women depicted their career path as “stagnant.”
