A new survey of 19 countries has found Irish women lack confidence in the workplace compared to their international peers.
The data from LinkedIn, conducted by Censuswide, reveal that Irish women lack confidence in telling their work story and are less proud of their work achievements.
Just 19% of Irish women say that they are proud of their work achievements, compared to 26% internationally.
This is marginally ahead of UK at 18% - but lags far behind countries like India at 30%, Spain at 38% and the USA at 38%.
But the study also found that only 46% of Irish women were confident they could effectively describe their work achievements if they “stumbled across their dream employer” - compared to 56% of Irish men asked the same question.
The survey found that almost 23% of women stated they would “panic” if they were asked on the spot to describe their achievements - compared to just 12% of men.
When it comes to sharing professional achievements online, Irish women were also less likely to talk about promotions than their male colleagues.
Some 20% of males surveyed would happily post about promotions online, compared to 13% of females.
