LinkedIn study shows that there is still a gender confidence gap in the UK, but optimism for both men and women is rising

A new study from LinkedIn shows that there is still a gender confidence gap in the UK, but optimism for both men and women is rising.

The report shows that women are still more likely to cite the pandemic as an anxiety source in terms of job availability, however their confidence in some areas outpaced men’s.

The data shows that while men are still more confident in their overall job security, financial situation and career, women’s confidence is rising at double the rate of their male counterparts – up eight points from the end of 2020 to a score of 20, compared to men’s score of 26, a four-point increase.

However, the data tells a story of women’s increasing concern when it comes to job availability and their own expenses. Compared to men, women are overwhelmingly more worried about the lack of jobs on the market – 42% cite it as a reason they’re feeling less confident.
