Did you know. . .
Women of color make up just 5 percent of U.S. state legislators.
Women make up over half the population but under 30 percent of executives.
Asian, black, and Hispanic women make up less than 4 percent of executive officials and managers.CCC
The leadership gender gap is persistent and pervasive but solvable. We can all take action.
Women leaders can make companies stronger and more profitable.
Women earn the majority of university degrees, yet they’re still underrepresented in top positions.
There is no lack of qualified women to
fill leadership roles. What’s in the way? Gender bias.
Why do we assume that people in
powerful positions are men – and how can we correct that?
The responsibility is on employers to create an equitable workplace culture.
Time will not solve the gender leadership gap; action will.
