New Report shows Women’s Leader Gap as big as Ever

A new report by Deloitte Report shows women’s leadership gap remains. Here are some of the findings.

  • Women hold 15 percent of board seats worldwide, a slight increase from 2015.
  • Organizations with women in the top leadership positions have almost double the number of board seats held by women.
  • Women hold only 4 percent of CEO and board chair positions globally.

I say this: Until we deal with the roots of the problem (systemic barriers and implicit bias) things will never change. I cant wait to do my TED talk on November 12!
