The Global Women and Leadership Research & Policy Brief Series
Utah Women & Leadership Project
The majority of top leadership teams do not fully realize the value of having women in key positions. A large body of research has shown this is the case across all sectors, including business, government, political, nonprofit, and education. 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, or board director. Gender inclusivity benefits not only businesses, but also entities such as legislatures, universities, schools, and city and municipality councils. Organizations will increasingly thrive when both men and women hold management and leadership roles. This is true for organizations around the world, and it is also true for organizations in Central and Eastern Europe.
