Empower, Support and Flourish Relationships with Women in Your Career

Posted by Kristi Brin on 7/14/16 9:38 AM

Women are underrepresented in the workforce, with only 57% of all eligible females being gainfully employed, and we are generally paid 77% of what men receive at the same level. Forty-two percent of entry level positions are filled by women, but only 23% of senior leadership and 4.6% of S&P 500 CEO positions are filled by women. At the rate of progress, it will take 25 years to reach gender parity at the senior-VP level, and more than 100 years in the C-suite. Women face more obstacles on the path to senior leadership, have lower odds of reaching these positions, and are exposed to less opportunity for advancement in our careers than our male counterparts. These statistics, from the Women in the Workplace Report, make one thing clear: we have a long way to go before we can truly say there is gender equality in the workforce.

My grandparents never held either of my parents to gender stereotypes, and they passed that gift along to me and my siblings.
