Financial Results Improve with Women in Leadership
  • Susan R. Madsen
A series of recent studies has shown that organizations that have more women in management and on boards, on average, attain better financial results than do other organizations. For example, according to a recent Catalyst Information Center report, Why Diversity Matters, a 2011 study found that “companies with the most women board directors out- performed those with the least on return on sales (ROS) by 16 percent and return on invested capital (ROIC) by 26 percent.”
