Women Managers with MBAs 3X as Likely to Lose Jobs as Male Colleagues

Woman squashed by foot While there has been much talk about how women have been able to hold onto their jobs during this recession, it seems this only applies if the woman works in a female dominated sector which hasn't been as badly hit by the recession such as medicine, education, customer service or retailing. New research as discussed on the Huffington Post by Ilene Lange from Catalyst shows that "while companies with more women in leadership and on boards, on average, financially outperform those with fewer, during this recession MBA women in senior leadership positions were three times more likely to lose their jobs as compared to men." So you have to wonder, how much are businesses waking up to the benefits that women in senior management positions bring to the bottom line.
