#GAReads | A push to get more women into the top ranks of management
Companies have been talking up their commitment to gender equity for years. Yet when it comes to female leadership, not much has changed.
Just 10 percent of the top executive positions in the 1,500 largest publicly traded companies in the country are held by women, according to Pew Research.
Recently, however, companies have started taking concrete steps to boost the ranks of women in management, going far beyond the vague promises of unconscious-bias training and mentorship programs.
