How one restaurant company achieved gender parity


KFC announced last week it has achieved gender parity across its global corporate offices, with women now constituting 51% of the company’s restaurant support center team.

According to a press release, KFC has been measuring progress using the McKinsey & Company Inclusion Survey, which tests whether a subset of employees believe they have an equal chance of success within the company. The survey measures the “gender experience gap” to understand the differences in employees’ observed, perceived, and lived experiences.

KFC’s parity milestone comes on the heels of McKinsey’s 2023 Women in the Workplace Report, which shows that for every 100 men promoted from entry-level to managerial positions, just 87 women received similar promotions.
