The Status of Women in Leadership

AAUW Outlook Spring 2016 cover. Woman standing in negative phrases and attitutes women in the workplace face.

Women have heard it all when it comes to leadership. Maybe you’ve been tasked with the note taking in a meeting, left out of a round of golf with the good ol’ boys, or looked at sideways when you had to take your child to the doctor. We know there’s a problem with women’s underrepresentation in leadership, and it’s linked to gender bias. But this issue of Outlook explores more than just the infuriating facts. We also tackle the context and the solutions.
