Organizations continue to trumpet the importance of a diverse and inclusive workforce to ensure a leading, competitive position. While it’s true that many barriers have been broken, a host of challenges still limit the potential of some employees because of their gender, age, race or ethnicity. The Catalyst Census recently investigated the idea that women and men have equal opportunities and found that under 15% of executive leadership roles at Fortune 500 companies are occupied by women and that this percentage has grown less than 1% in four years. Fields such as finance, technology, professional sports, military and advertising seem to present some of the toughest environments for women to break through. In this panel, we’ll hear from The Muse's Kathryn Minshew, Sproutel's Hannah Chung, JWT's Mary Margaret Connell and Brigadier General Lori Reynolds of USMC, all women who have persevered in their professions and now occupy top positions in traditionally male dominated fields.
