Half of the region’s largest companies have no women on their executive teams.
That’s just a piece of what can be found in “Women on Boards 2015” report by The Forum of Executive Women, a membership organization of women who hold the senior-most positions in Philadelphia-area corporate, nonprofit and public sector organizations.
The report tracks how many women are in leadership positions in the largest organizations in the area. It also asks, “What’s it going to take?” to bump these numbers and offers a call to action to get more women in leadership positions, stating that “an all-out, deliberate effort to change the culture is needed.” In an effort to draw a path to solutions, the report highlights a few companies, like Voorhees, N.J.-based American Water, that are making that effort.
Below, read the report itself and check out our interactive graph of some of the report’s biggest findings.-30-
