Michigan Women’s Leadership Report
Inforum’s Michigan Women’s Leadership Report is a biennial snapshot on the status of women at the highest levels of governance and leadership in Michigan’s largest 100 publicly traded companies.
The 2015 Report is a collaborative initiative between Inforum and the Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University. (The next report will be published in October 2017.)
The issue of gender diversity in corporate America has gained momentum in recent years–but evidence suggests it has advanced more in principle than in practice. The gains women have made over time in the boardrooms and C-suites of public companies in our state and the nation have been–and continue to be–slow in the making.
In 2013, we reviewed women’s progress in 100 Michigan public companies over a full decade, examining data from 2003 forward to document their progress in achieving positions as executive officers, and top earners.
More recent information demonstrates the needle hasn’t budged much in the ensuing two years. Strong evidence that women remain underrepresented at the highest levels of corporate leadership in Michigan companies is revealed in fresh data mined from publicly available sources.
