Where Women in Executive Leadership are?
We welcome Kamala Harris to lead the Vice President role in the highest office in the United States. Here are the Top 10 Female CEOs & Influential Business Women of American Companies. Of these leaders, MoneyShare found that approximately there are 22 female presidents or prime ministers world wide, and about a dozen women executives leading Fortune 500 companies.
Successful leaders are connected through and to other champions, who are both mentors and sponsors. The Center for Creative Leadership found that women need to cultivate their network of champions for advancing women leaders and that in turn creates opportunity that increases financial performance:
- Fortune 500 companies with the highest representation of women on boards financially outperform those with the fewest female board members.
- A Gallup study found gender-diverse business units have higher average revenue compared to less diverse businesses.
- Hiring a larger percentage of women generally predicts greater job satisfaction, higher levels of employee engagement, and improved attrition/less burnout — for all workers, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, or leadership level.
