It is no surprise that 2020 was a tumultuous year for employ and workplace dynamics. Many were left unemployed or seeking new opportunities, and the COVID-19 pandemic created an array of new-normal challenges. Fast forward to 2023, the landscape of the workplace is projected to shift significantly. Women are expected to play an increasingly important role in the workforce and economic growth of their countries. Here are some of the expected workplace stats for women in 2023:


  • 50%+ of the global workforce will be female
  • Women are projected to fill 90% of new jobs created in 2023


  • 1 in 4 low-wage jobs are held by women
  • Women are expected to fill 40% of executive/management positions

Pay & Job Security

  • Women will continue to face persistent wage gaps in 2023
  • The majority of women (78%) are satisfied with their job security

By 2023, women will make up a much larger portion of the working population than before. Though there are still areas of improvement, such as wage gaps and job security, the opportunities for women in the workplace have increased. With more women joining the workforce and blazing the trail for future generations, 2023 is poised to be a breakthrough year for prominent female leaders and innovators.
