A new poll from LeanIn.org and SurveyMonkey found that 60% of male managers are uncomfortable taking part in workplace activities like mentoring and socializing with junior-level women — a 32% increase from last year.

Why it matters: It highlights how women can receive less support and development in their careers — as well as the ability to prove themselves in the workplace — as men in leadership positions pull back in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

By the numbers: 36% of all men say they've purposefully avoided mentoring or socializing with a woman because they were "nervous about how it would look."

  • Men at senior levels are especially avoiding activities they feel may look bad — they're 12 times more likely than junior-level men to hesitate about having a 1-on-1 meeting with a woman.

The big picture: 70% of employees surveyed say their company has "taken action to address sexual harassment," a 46% increase from last year.

  • Yes, but: Half of polled employees say punishments for sexual harassment are not harsh enough.

The United States' alarming rise in coronavirus cases isn't due to increased testing — particularly not where cases have grown fastest over the last month.

Why it matters: The U.S. doesn't yet know what it looks like when a pandemic rages on relatively unchecked after the health system has become overwhelmed. It may be about to find out.
