Female Leadership Matters


The overall number of women in top business roles is still painfully low. Today, less than 10% of CEO’s of major companies in the U.S. are women. However, on the bright side, today over 40% of companies have over four women in the C-Suite, up from over 25% in 2018.

It’s now a proven fact that in business, female leaders can achieve agreements and make deals where men might fall short. But they have to be at the table, and they have to be given positions of leadership and authority.
