  Since 2007, McKinsey & Company has published Women Matter, a series which analyzes the state of diversity in the top management of corporations. In January 2014, they released Women Matter 2013 "Gender diversity in top management: Moving corporate culture, moving boundaries."   For me, the highlights of the survey results are:   Female executives are ambitious and sure of their own abilities to become top managers, though they are less confident that their companies' cultures can support their rise. Cultural factors at work are more than twice as likely as individual factors to link to women's confidence that they can reach top management.

By - Last updated: Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Sheer joy.....with a little dash of pride.....was what I felt when I saw the title of an essay written by Elizabeth DiEmanuele, posted on her facebook page with the link to the essay itself.
