AAUW Logo===Are leaders born? Or are they made? What about women leaders? And what about those women who beat the odds and zoom to the top? As it turns out, women continue to be especially underrepresented in leadership positions in virtually all professions. None of the CEOs at the top 15 media corporations are women.Only 3 percent of CEOs in Fortune 500 companies are women. And the most staggering of all...Women make on average only 77% of what men earn in similar jobs with similar experience. And...for the first time since the 1970s...the number of women in Congress declined! We'll talk with Liz Fragola and Barbara Monteiro Burgo to find out what AAUW is doing to generate a new bumper crop of women leaders who can shape our world. It's the last day of Women's History Month, I am Carole Copeland Thomas, and you're listening to Focus on Empowerment!!!
