Pipeline’s Broken Promise examines the conventional wisdom of the past two decades in which leaders have counted on parity in education, women’s accelerated movement into the labor force, and company-implemented diversity and inclusion programs to yield a robust talent pipeline where women are poised to make rapid gains to the top.

Among high-potential graduates from elite MBA programs — those companies count on for future leadership — women lagged men in advancement and compensation starting from their first job and were less satisfied with their careers.
This report includes perspectives from CEOs and other senior leaders, who considered the findings a wake-up call and made recommendations for corrective action. A Statistical Appendix is available.
