A Seat at the Table: Celebrating Women & Board Leadership
A Seat at the Table: CelebratingWomen and Board Leadership, a report on gender diversity in New Jersey’s corporate boards, is a joint initiative of ExecutiveWomen of New Jersey and PwC. The report provides statistics on board composition in New Jersey’s top 111 publicly-held companies, as well as numbers on women in executive
officer and CEO positions, highlighting the high earners.
Just as Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In has generated new discussion on women in management, we hope that this report will ignite similar brushfires in New Jersey boardrooms. Statistical reports have shown definitively that companies with women on boards achieve better organizational performance, higher rates of return, and more effective risk management.
