Business & Entrepreneurship

Women have made significant progress in the work force and private sector, but the glass ceiling is still firmly in place, particularly at senior levels of decision-making and management. Businesses are now recognizing the importance of diversity and including a wider range of talents and perspectives at all levels of management and they are offering networking, mentoring and other services to improve recruitment and retention of women and people of color. Although women represent a significant number of small business owners, women-run businesses capture only a small percentage of capital investments and government contracts. re:gender's network is working to close these gaps by focusing attention on equal opportunity, educational parity, career options, promotions, networking and work/life balance as well as other critical issues.
