U.S.Chamber Center for Women in Business Workshop -
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its Center for Women in Business partnered with Georgetown University to examine women as business leaders. This research focuses on women’s participation in the top management ranks of the companies featured in the Standard & Poor’s (S&P) MidCap 400 listing from 2000 to 2010.
The findings reveal that younger female executives (between 27 and 39 years old) suffered a decline in their ranks starting earlier than the other executives. There is also a large difference between industries based on the representation of women in their executive ranks, and finally, compensation between male and female executives appears to be narrowing.
