No Change for Women in Top Leadership
Once again the needle barely budged for women aspiring to top business leadership in corporate America, according to the 2013 Catalyst Census: Fortune 500 Executive Officers and Top Earners.
Among the findings:
- Women held 14.6 percent of Executive Officer positions, essentially the same as last year (14.3%).
- There was no gain year over year as women held only 8.1% of Executive Officer top earner slots.
- In both 2012 and 2013, one-fifth of companies had 25 percent or more women Executive Officers, yet more than one-quarter had no women Executive Officers.
