|Corporations are beginning to understand the importance of having women's perspectives on their boards, as well as a part of their executive leadership. Studies have also shown that companies with women on their boards outperform companies whose boards have no women. However, even in light of these profound findings, only 16% of Fortune 500 Board seats are held by women. |
