Building a Pipeline to Women's Leadership 2011
Building a Pipeline to Women's Leadership:
NCRW 2011 Afternoon Program
Please join the National Council for Research on Women and a panel of visionary leaders for an in-depth exploration of the most pressing issues of our time. This year’s program, Building a Pipeline to Women’s Leadership, will grapple with the uneven progress women are making both educationally and in their career trajectory:
• The number of women leaders has stalled at 11%-18% across sectors, and in finance and STEM fields, it is much lower.
• Today, women receive the majority of Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees, but not in all fields, such as in STEM disciplines, economics and finance.
• The promise women and girls display in the classroom is not translating into key decision-making and leadership positions in their careers.
The Council has invited thoughtful leaders in both higher education and the corporate arena to share their vision, insights, strategies, and the action steps for unlocking women’s and girls’ potential in all fields of study and careers.
