Organizations need to look within to uncover the real obstacles to gender diversity at the top
It is no secret that a significant gender gap exists in corporate leadership. Women are under-represented in C-suites and boardrooms, relative to their proportions within companies and industries. Many organizations have instituted programs designed to support women’s leadership development and increase diversity of all kinds within senior ranks yet this commitment has not translated into reality. In fact, even among highly-educated men and women, it remains the case that men are more likely to hold leadership positions.
