A Clear Case for Action
Diverse leadership brings valuable breadth of perspective to decision making. Research also supports links between diversity and good governance. Many CEOs are realizing that gender and racial diversity within their boards and executive offices will help improve their companies' bottom line.
Wisconsin's business community has a unique opportunity to create a bright future through inclusion, and to become progressive leaders nationally by optimizing all of their talent –male and female.
In a complex global marketplace a wide range of viewpoints, backgrounds, skills and experience is valuable in helping companies to make the right strategic and operational decisions.
Milwaukee Women inc has been producing research of board and executive management gender diversity in the 50 largest Wisconsin-based public companies since 2003. We hope the results of our research will encourage Wisconsin's companies to move toward greater diversity in their leadership ranks. We are confident that those companies will enjoy greater financial success and Wisconsin will benefit from a stronger economy and a more attractive environment in which to live, work and do business.
