By Kimber Maderazzo, C200 Chair
Women CEOs in America is the first report of its kind. Led by the Women Business Collaborative (WBC), an alliance organization dedicated to building a movement to rapidly change the numbers of women in leadership positions, C200, a global nonprofit for women business leaders dedicated to educating and advancing women in business, and Catalyst, a global nonprofit that accelerates women’s leadership, we worked together to collect data from both the public and private sector. We wanted to obtain a better understanding of how women are represented today in CEO roles so that we can share that information with the larger business community and gain buy-in for accelerating the pace of change.
