Project 28–40: The Report

Project 28–40 gives insight into the needs, opinions and aspirations of the 25,000 women and men who filled in their survey. This report is a first look at what they told them, and what needs to be done.

The report shows that women are just as confident, able and ambitious as men, while sharing similar priorities in work and life. Frustratingly, they are still not receiving enough support from their employers to achieve their ambitions. We’ve set out simple things that organisations can do to make work better for all their employees – men and women – and now it’s up to them to take action.
— Helena Morrissey CBE, CEO of Newton Investment Management and Chair of Opportunity Now
