Although women make up nearly half of the workforce, several metrics indicate that a gender gap persists, but is narrowing over time. Qualified women are often passed up for promotions and make 84 cents on average for every dollar a man earns.
“There are many talented women from diverse backgrounds and experiences that have a great deal to contribute,” says Alice Korngold, president of Korngold Consulting and author of the book, “A Better World, Inc.: How Companies Profit by Solving Global Problems…Where Governments Cannot.”
“The world needs all the great people to contribute in various ways, especially as we are looking to tackle important social, economic, environmental issues,” she continued. “We can’t leave out half of the population. We want to include all the people that we want to contribute.”
