About the Council

Women earn at least half of undergraduate and graduate degrees and comprise a substantial part of the workforce as well as the marketplace for products and talent. Women are well represented in entry and mid-level positions, but there is a drop-off at senior levels. We explore women’s leadership topics, relevant issues, and strategies for reinforcing the development of women business leaders and closing the leadership gap.


  • Resource groups, retention, intersectionality, tracking progress, accountability
  • Strategic initiatives for women’s advancement that impact business results
  • Ensuring women’s initiatives are inclusive of all women, including women of color
