Helping Build Careers
Leading to Success
A workplace that promotes advancing women into senior management and leadership positions are more profitable, more socially responsible, and provides safer, higher-quality customer experiences — among many other benefits according to a 2021 study from Harvard Business Review. Women account for almost half of US labor workers and slightly more than half of college-educated women, totaling 1 in 3 senior work leaders, representing about 58% of the workforce’s advanced degree holders according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Astonishingly, a 2022 article by Zippia states that over 90% of Fortune 500 companies are run by men – leaving 8.2% of them run by women in general and less than 1% led by women of color. These numbers are a record-breaking high for female leadership at Fortune 500 companies. That 1%, or two women of color leaders, is the most that any Fortune 500 company has ever seen to date.
