Salute to the Most Influential Women in Business
It’s hard to imagine that just two
generations ago women were still an anomaly in the workplace. Today, women make up more than half of the workforce and hold
a little more than half of management and professional positions, according to Catalyst, a nonprofit organization dedicated
to the advancement of women in the workplace. Progress is awesome!
While challenges remain (few women serve on company boards, pay gap between men and women, etc.), it’s undeniable that we’ve seen great
advances for women in business. On this American Business Women’s Day, we
salute those women who have made significant contributions to changing
Corporate America from a stodgy, good-ol-boy environment to one where women are
not only surviving but thriving. In the words of Martina McBride, this one’s
for the girls!
