These numbers underline the work that remains to be done, even as the case for greater diversity becomes more compelling. We live in a deeply connected and global world. It should come as no surprise that more diverse companies and institutions are achieving better performance. Most organizations, including McKinsey, must do more to take full advantage of the opportunity that diverse leadership teams represent. That’s particularly true for their talent pipelines: attracting, developing, mentoring, sponsoring, and retaining the next generations of global leaders at all levels of organizations. Given the higher returns that diversity is expected to bring, we believe it is better to invest now, since winners will pull further ahead and laggards will fall further behind.

An article on Oct. 6 about the status of women in the fields of science and mathematics misstated a statistic regarding girls who are taking high-school physics. It was the percentage ofgirls among all high-school physics students of both sexes that rose to 47 percent in 1997 from 39 percent in 1987 — not the percentage of girls taking high-school physics among all high-school girls. The article also misstated the status of a woman hired by the mathematics department at Yale University for a tenure-track position in 2010. She is yet to come up for tenure. She was not denied it.
