While leadership is key to organizational success, women are not always equally represented. Women tend to rise to middle management and then experience being promoted slowly, with even fewer women representing on boards and as members of the C-suite. Women receive 57% of all higher education degrees. We look to examine and discuss that disconnect.

In order for institutional change and equal representation to occur in the workplace, education and action need to be taken at all levels and by everyone throughout the workplace. By understanding the challenges and barriers that women leaders face, women and men can begin to chip away at how to solve this complex issue and make strides toward lasting change.
