According to global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company, women leaders are resigning from their companies at a higher rate than men leaders. Specifically, numbers from McKinsey show that in 2021, the percentage of voluntary attribution by women leaders is at 10.5%, while the percentage for men leaders is at 9%. 

Women leave due to a variety of reasons, including burnout, to raise a family, or the desire to look for a different work culture that values gender equality, and career advancement.
