There were thirty-three women CEOs of Fortune 500 companies in 2019. And though it is a record, I explore the data more thoroughly in this video and the news is not what you’d expect. Actually – to the contrary.
How are we ever going to get a larger number of women to represent us in the boardroom? Why aren’t the numbers moving more faster when topics like equality, diversity and inclusion are so ‘top of mind’? Why haven’t all the women’s support groups, associations, seminars and conferences made a difference? Why does gender inequity in the workplace still exist?
First, as I point out in my book Happy Woman Happy World, we have to see women supporting each other, collaborating together and standing strong on the topic of women leadership. Why? Because there are so many contradictory–and often negative–biases around women as leaders. Find out what the single biggest obstacle is that prevents women from being promoted into the C-suite.
This is nothing new to me, I spend a great deal of my time coaching women to provide them with the tools and the take-charge-attitude they need to advance their careers. I also help companies build more balanced teams because it has a positive impact on their bottom lines. And this is what I share in this video.
We must come together because 33 out of 500—that is less than seven percent. And yet, we are 51% of the population. Shouldn’t that number be around 250? Watch the video to see how we can get there. Then ‘Like’ and Share it to spread the word.
