Let’s spot the bias here.

Look at the above. I’d pull out a few things. First of all, the data is only from Harvard MBAs, which is not a representative sample. Second of all, how is “burnout” defined? How is “impact on mental and physical health” defined? This is so shoddily organized that I almost assume the question-askers were prompting women of color like “Hey Jan, are you burned out? I bet you are, right?” There’s nothing seemingly right with this study. Now, are women (and women of color) more burned out? Very likely yes. But you need to do a little bit better in order to get to that spot.
