On this episode of Your Cheddar we're celebrating International Women's Day, which takes place March 8th. Subha Barry, Senior VP and Managing Director of Working Mother Media joins to discuss the top companies for women executives based off a survey done by The National Association for Female Executives.
A few companies named on that list include JCPenney, Gap, Chico's, HP, Target, and IBM. The survey also found that female CEO representation among the list of companies increased two percentage points to 14% this year, outpacing the S&P 500 at 5%.
Barry talks about how companies can get involved in women's rights...and how men should join the conversation! She points out movements such as Time's Up an #MeToo have helped raise awareness of gender equality and she hopes to see more movement in 2018.
