Creating An Employee Executive Board Will Close the Gender Gap in Business by Kristy Wallace
Women make up half of the global population, contribute $7 trillion in US consumer and business spending and drive 85% of all consumer purchasing. That’s pretty awesome.
But the power of women in the economy isn’t translating to the workplace. While women represent 47% of the US workforce, we hold less than 20% of Fortune 500 Board seats, 14% of the top five leadership positions at the companies in the S&P 500 and 4% of S&P 500 CEO spots. There are even more men named John running large corporations than there are women CEOs. -more- http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kristy-wallace/creating-an-employee-exec_b_9409200.html
