Research and Policy Brief
Utah Women & Leadership Project
Research has shown that most managers and top leadership teams do not fully realize the value of having women in key positions, and this is the case across all sectors, including business, government, political, nonprofit, K-12 and higher education, religious, and community. Depending on the entity, this may include women in both paid and unpaid roles ranging from positions such as supervisor, coordinator, and manager, to school principal, council member, CEO, and board director. Organizations will increasingly thrive when both men and women hold management and leadership roles. This is true for organizations in the U.S. and around the world, and it is also true for organizations in Utah. Gender inclusivity benefits not only businesses, but also entities such as churches, state legislatures, and city councils.
