Rockefeller Foundation Announces Campaign to Achieve Workplace Equality
Despite some strides in achieving workplace equality, only 21 women helm the world’s largest corporations today, according to a survey released by the Rockefeller Foundation.
Judith Rodin, president of the Rockefeller Foundation, announced a campaign to change that today at the Forbes Women’s Summit.
She acknowledged there’s a lot of work to be done but aside from moving toward equality, the results will also be beneficial to everyone. “Companies with women in the C-suite are 15% more profitable [than others].”
The big question, however is how to achieve this. At a panel on redefining the workplace, suggestions included mentorships, redefining men’s roles and blind recruitment.
