In today’s global marketplace, where diverse backgrounds, skills, and experience are critical for strategic and operational decisions, having more women involved at the highest levels of business management and organizational governance is associated with more profitable and well-managed organizations. Our startups should be no different.

Even though the percentage of women in the talent pipeline has steadily increased over the last three decades there are still large gender gaps from entry-level right through to top executive positions. Research from the Boardlist shows that in tech women hold only 30% of the entry-level roles, and only approximately 7% of private tech company boards are made up of women.

In a multi-year study the UC Davis Graduate School of Management bench-marked annually gender diversity at the leadership level. In their results they show how those organizations with women in leadership roles have a bottom line improvement. Join this conversation and hear some of reasons why having women in senior leadership and Board roles will benefit your entire organization. En el mercado global actual, donde los antecedentes, las habilidades y la experiencia son cruciales para las decisiones estratégicas y operativas, contar con más mujeres participando en los más altos niveles de gestión empresarial y gobierno organizacional se asocia con organizaciones más rentables y mejor administradas. Nuestras empresas no deberían ser ajenas a esto.

Aunque el porcentaje de mujeres ha aumentado en las últimas tres décadas, todavía existen grandes brechas de género desde el nivel inicial hasta los puestos ejecutivos más altos. La investigación de Boardlist muestra que en la tecnología las mujeres ocupan solo el 30% de las funciones de nivel de entrada, y solo aproximadamente el 7% de la junta de directorio de empresas de tecnología privada están compuestas por mujeres. En un estudio de varios años la UC Davis Graduate School of Management trabajo con el estudio anual de la diversidad de género a nivel de liderazgo. En sus resultados, muestran cómo las organizaciones con mujeres en puestos de liderazgo tienen una mejora en los resultados. Participe en esta conversación y aprenda las razones por las cuales contar con mujeres en puestos de liderazgo y en la junta de directores beneficiará a toda su organización.
