Spring 2016: Women in Leadership

TOW_April 2016_profile picWomen in Leadership – Spring 2016

Twenty years ago, the Women’s Fund of Omaha published its first Women & Leadership report. That 1996 report highlighted how many women held top positions in corporations, what the gender mix looked like in elected offices and who held leadership positions on both paid and volunteer boards. The news, unsurprisingly, was not good.

That report was updated in 2006—showing only marginal improvement for women in leadership roles—and it is now being updated once more. The full 2016 report will be released in early May.

This issue delves into multigenerational workforces, intentional leadership, and diversity in the workplace while feature profiles on prominent leaders in our community who are working to move the needle.
