Resources on Women in Leadership And Management

by Patricia Brannan

To build on the Mind the (Gender) Gap post below, I’d like to offer some resources on the positive side of the equation on women in leadership and management. Every business wants to identify a winning team that creates the best conditions for success. Research data support the proposition that the involvement of women as corporate leaders is correlated with higher profits. Some studies focus on boards, while others highlight the value of women in executive positions.

Here are a few resources that I hope you will find useful...

Roy D. Adler, Ph.D., Women in the Executive Suite Correlate to High Profits

David A.H. Brown, Debra L. Brown, and Vanessa Anastasopoulos, The Conference Board of Canada, Women on Boards: Not Just the Right Thing…But the “Bright” Thing

McKinsey & Company, Women Matter

A research company called Catalyst has the mission of studying women in business and leadership. The website is full of data on specific industries; this is a good short summary.

There was great interest at the Summit in “hard facts” on the value of women in leadership. Suggestions of other resources would be very welcome.
