Why are Black women 26% less likely to be promoted?

Source Black talent — frontline to c-suite.

The Problem

It’s not talent scarcity.

35%

of Black women hold a college degree​

The rate of Black women earning degrees exceeds that of Latinas, Native Americans, Asian/Pacific Islanders and White women.

The Problem

It’s bias-driven exclusion

FACT:

Having a single Black woman in the finalist pool for a job is effectively equivalent to having zero Black female candidates.

Impact of Exclusion

Black women are the only race-gender group whose promotion is negatively impacted by the racial composition of their coworkers.
