17 Truths about Women's Leadership: Insights from the 12th Annual Women's Leadership Conference

Progress is stagnant for women in the workplace, particularly in US-based S&P 500 companies—only 4.6 percent of CEOs are women, and women hold only 19.9 percent of board seats. We need to make cultural changes both in the workplace and in society, or nothing will change. In the meantime, women need to help other women succeed, and seasoned women leaders need to nurture and develop less experienced women. Companies can help by using employee resource groups to shape business strategy, lead diversity and inclusion initiatives, disrupt views on aging, and engage men.
