In recent years, the percentage of women holding senior and C-Suite roles in organizations has increased. However, breaking through the glass ceiling remains a very real challenge for most women – and the organizations that seek to retain and leverage their talent – to overcome. This is evidenced by the drop in the percentage of women from the mid-level leader range (28% women) to just 17% at the senior executive level.
