Women Leaders Make for a Better Bottom Line

Woman climbing career ladder My mum and my clients have got my number, they know exactly what I will love to see, and this article in the Washington Post called "Fixing the Economy is Women's Business" was fantastic. I love seeing more research coming out virtually monthly showing how important it is  to have women in senior leadership roles for the bottom line. Research is reassuring and includes studies from organisations including "Columbia University, McKinsey & Co., Goldman Sachs and Pepperdine University, that document a clear relationship between women in senior management and corporate financial success. By all measures, more women in your company means better performance. Pepperdine found that the Fortune 500 firms with the best records of putting women at the top were 18 to 69 percent more profitable than the median companies in their industries. McKinsey looked at the top-listed European companies and found that greater gender diversity in management led to higher-than-average stock performance." Diversity pays, and even if that is the only reason companies address the gender disparity – I'm glad it is an issue that is finally getting the attention it deserves.
