How can you get more women in key positions? Hire them! Women influence or make 80-90% of buying decisions and are 50% of the workforce, it’s going to take another 217 years to reach parity among the genders. Something has to give. The continued dearth of female leaders inhibits innovation, humanity and the economy. Knowing how to disrupt the systematic biases that hinder rather than harness the best talent allows each of us to make a difference in our lives and in the world around us.
