Highlights of various studies of Millennial women’s attitudes:
• The Center for Talent Innovation found that young people said they saw their parents struggle while working full time, or leave the work force altogether, and wanted a different option. • A Harvard Business School study of its alumni, released as part of the school’s new gender initiative, found that 37% of Millennial women and 42% of those already married planned to interrupt their career for family. That compared with 28% of Gen X women and 17% of Baby Boomers. • The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania found from graduating women students that, while 78% of the business school graduates in 1992 said they planned to have children, 42% said the same by 2012. • A Pew Research Center study found that 58% of working Millennial mothers said being a working mother made it harder for them to get ahead in their careers, compared with 38% of older women.
