Diversity in the work place and within management and project teams has been shown to improve results. Women tend to have lower incomes due to fewer overall years in the job market as well as fewer promotions to management or inclusion in more important roles in project development. The reason for fewer overall years in the job market tends to be due to childrearing. Women are still the primary caregivers on average. In addition to having an onsite daycare or paying enough to cover the cost of daycare, permitting more flexible maternity leave and possibly including some flexible work from home projects could help keep more women employed longer. Providing paternity leave could also help support female employees and healthy families by providing the family more bonding time during the more challenging first few weeks and months of child rearing.
