Uneven Progress

Many organizations around the country track local progress on women at the top of organizations and on corporate boards. Last week The Chicago Network released its most recent statistics and the results are mixed.

"2008 Census key findings:

  • Women directors increased from 14.3% from 15.0%, the highest level since The Network began tracking.
  • Six companies, up from four, have no women directors.
  • Women executive officers increased 0.4% to 14.4%, after falling for two consecutive years.
  • The number of companies with no women executive officers grew from 12 to 16
  • The number of companies with no women among top earners rose to 36, from 31."
