Leaders in a Global Economy: A Study of Executive Men and Women
The Leaders in a Global Economy project grew out of the concerns of a group of companies.
These companies had already identified the growing need for attracting, developing and
retaining women as a key competitive business strategy, and they had been working on doing
so for a number of years. Despite their progress, however, they felt there were still many challenges—
both subtle and overt—to overcome. They wanted to better understand these challenges
on a global basis so they could develop new approaches and strategies to address the
advancement of both women and men.
