#108 - Women in Business

By Michigan Ross

Women are incredibly impactful leaders, but there is still a lot of work left to do to open the doors of opportunity for women throughout the business world. Today, women make up less than 5 percent of CEO jobs at fortune 500 companies – despite mountains of research and evidence showing that having more women in leadership roles leads to better business performance. In this episode, we'll hear from an expert on why it's important to have women in these roles and what has been holding that progress back, we'll hear a bit about how men and allies can help, and we'll hear from two students working hard to empower future women leaders while they’re pursuing their MBAs.
