    Women have made significant contributions to companies all over the world and continue to inspire the next generation of women leaders. So why are only a small percentage of women actually gaining access to these opportunities that advance to roles of leadership? Although we are witnessing success stories of women shattering glass ceilings, becoming the “first” of many titles, it is still

    not a reality for many women to reach senior leadership. Companies stand to lose some of
    their brightest minds due to limited opportunities. Moreover, a significant number of minority women leave industries all together to start their own businesses when those opportunities are systematically denied. Unfortunately, people make career changes after dedicating many years of their lives to a company because of a lack thereof to advance their career and this is most
    often women. What can companies do to change this narrative and empower their female employees?
