Pandemic burnout is nipping at the slow but steady progress American women have made up and down the corporate ladder over the last five years, a McKinsey & Co. report conducted in partnership with Lean In released Monday has found.

In an annual survey of 65,000 workers across 423 organizations, one-third of women said they were considering scaling back their careers or leaving the workforce altogether. That figure jumped almost 10 percentage points from the beginning months of the pandemic. Women, the survey found, were more likely to report experiencing burnout than men — a gap that’s widened in the last year, too.
