MBA Chic: Breaking up with business: why women leaders are walking away

March 29. 2023

Executive Director Noreen Farrell is featured in an MBA Chic article about a trend of women in business leaving leadership positions.

Executive Director of Equal Rights Advocates Noreen Farrell, says several factors are driving senior-level women from their jobs at a record pace. The underlying theme is the pursuit of respect and equity.

“They are leaving jobs where they are undervalued and leaving employers that don’t support time off for family care,” says Farrell. “Women are going to companies with more generous work from home options. And women facing roadblocks to progress and burnout are exploring new careers that are more fulfilling, with employers that value them more,” says Farrell.


“There is a new future of work, and women at senior levels are pursuing it. Companies seeking to retain top talent need to prioritize pay transparency and equity, clear promotion tracks, family care support, and flexible remote work options,” says Farrell.
