Our client, the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs and Executives in conjunction with the UC Davis Graduate School of Management published the annual study “UC Davis Study of California Women Business Leaders: A Census of Women Directors and Executive Officers.”
This study takes a hard look at the small percentage of women in the executive suites and boardrooms of the state’s top 400 publicly traded companies in California. For the first time, the annual survey starts to examine the consequences and suggests that shareholders and the environment may be paying a price for the gender imbalance at the top of most firms.
The study was released on Thursday, November 19 and can be found on the FWE&E site, click here.
