DETROIT, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- In these challenging economic times, companies and individuals recognize the importance of differentiating themselves in the marketplace and taking steps to secure their future. according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women are on the verge of becoming the majority of the paid workforce. Yet women are still underrepresented in the executive rosters and boards of the majority of U.S. companies.
"Research shows there is a strong correlation between how well top corporations develop and promote women leaders and how successful those corporations are in the marketplace," said Terry Barclay, CEO of Inforum and Inforum Center for Leadership. "If companies lag behind when it comes to utilizing talented women, they could be at a big disadvantage compared to their peers and competitors."
