Inforum Center for Leadership released its 2015 Michigan Women’s Leadership Report, a snapshot of the leadership role of women in Michigan’s top 100 public companies. The findings include:
- Women occupy 11.5 percent of boardroom seats in the state’s top 100 public companies – their share down slightly from 11.6 percent since 2013.
- Women’s representation among the top earners in their companies has declined from 9.6 percent two years ago to 8 percent in 2015.
- And women today hold 13 percent of executive officer positions – exactly their share in 2013.
- Women are entirely absent as executive officers, board directors and top earners in nearly one-third of Michigan’s top 100 public companies.
The Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University conducted the research for a second consecutive installment of the biennial report. Edge Partnerships designed the report again this year, bringing the research to life.
