Rising Together Women's History Month @ LV 2022 is all great talk

The 5th Annual Rising Together Women's History Month 2022 Season was commemorated by two key conversations with men.

Wednesday, March 30, 2022 - A conversation about ethical and responsible public service with Allentown Mayor Matt Tuerk.

Thursday, March 31, 2022 - A view to excellent workplace and self leadership with Ross Born, past CEO of Just Born

The conversations highlighted, the importance of women in history and contemporary society. Highlighting the need for a normal, where everyone is empowered and enabled to thrive; acknowledging that such environments are conducive to excellence for women.

In 2021, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC, approved a proposal by Nasdaq, to increase the number of underserved groups on U.S. corporate boards. The policy will require the roughly 3,000 companies listed on Nasdaq to hire at least one woman on their board of directors.

In the United States, women were nearly half (47.0%) of the labor force, and 40.9% of managers in 2021. In 2021, white women held almost a third (32.6%) of all management positions. Women of color held a drastically smaller share of management positions:

  • Latinas: 4.3%

  • Black women: 4.3%

  • Asian women: 2.7%

In 2021, women made up the highest share of managers in human resources (74.8%). Their share of management in selected other industries was:

  • Medical and health services: 75.1%

  • Marketing: 61.5%

  • Food service: 48.5%

According CSNEWS, mentoring or sponsoring women takes the support of many industry men. For many women leaders, having the support of a male boss pushed their career forward and provided the upward mobility that catalyzed their significant success.

Three significant things that helped women the most advance the corporate ladder included removing barriers in organizational structure, providing the opportunity for women to develop diverse/relevant experience and the willingness to confront affinity bias
