A Pew poll in September found 59 percent of American adults think there are too few women in top executive business positions. Women, at 70 percent, were more likely to feel that way than men, who said at a 48-percent rate too few women are in business leadership. Just over half said gender discrimination is a major reason why there aren't more women in executive roles.
Should your workplace have more women in leadership roles?

We are all women and are always for more women!

If we assume that men and women are equally qualified, then if positions are filled by the best qualified, eventually there will be a fifty/fifty balance.

We are ranked as one of Worcester County's top 5 women owned businesses and we're very proud of that ranking! We have many women in key management roles throughout our organization!

I am a woman and I don't want to be given a job just because I am a woman. I want to earn my position through my capabilities and qualifications and because I'm the best person for the job.

Although we are in a male dominated industry, we have more women in upper management than men. This is not something we set out as a goal, and I don't think a company should set a gender goal. For us, we have just hired and promoted the people that we feel are most competent.

Not only at my workplace, but at every organization, leadership should be diverse to reflect a larger population. Diversity by gender, race, age, ethnicity, etc provides for more robust discussions with varying opinions.

Our organization may be unique in it is female founded, owned and operated and the current leadership in CEO, Operations and Finance is all female. Leadership does abide to the philosophy of hiring for those best qualified regardless of gender.

Many women are already in leadership roles here. Don't you think quality matter s a little more than quantity?

If equally qualified then YES.

Discrimination includes systemic bias and lack of support for women who want to break out of traditional gender roles.
