Advancing Women's Leadership

Women currently make up 15 percent of corporate management, 16 percent of law partners, and less than 3 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs. NCRW and its partners are working to improve these numbers as they work toward a critical mass, often viewed as 30 percent representation, across sectors to benefit the economy and society through women’s talents and perspectives. Without sufficient numbers, women’s ideas, views and analyses risk being marginalized or perceived as representing a narrow minority. With greater access to opportunities and positions of influence, the likelihood of acceptance and professional success for women and people of color increases.

 In its recent report, Re:Gender features four exceptional women of color business leaders and explores the lessons learned by eight innovative companies that developed strategies for promoting the advancement of women of color.  The report outlines why this makes economic sense, and identifies ways diversity advocates can create more inclusive institutions that attract, support, and retain women of color in the corporate sector and beyond.

Diversity drives diversity: From the boardroom to the C-suite

EY

Incremental changes in gender diversity continued across boardrooms and C-suites at US companies in 2013.
The data reveals that these incremental changes may be transformative over time: putting women on the board and in leadership roles drives further diversification — across gender, tenure and age — in the boardroom and across the executive pipeline.
