Women are dramatically outnumbered in senior leadership. Only about 1 in 5 C-suite leaders is a woman, and only 1 in 25 is a woman of color.
The research shows:
Women of color are far more likely than white women to say they want to advance to the next level—and Black and Asian women are even more interested in advancing than men.
Women of color are much more interested in becoming a top executive than white women are. Black women with leadership ambitions are particularly interested in paving the way for others and having a positive impact on company culture.
