Below is a compilation of our research on women’s role in corporate governance. In New Hampshire, as well as in the United States, when you go up the chain of command in a company, the higher you get, the fewer women you see. Women seem to be consistently under-represented in corporate leadership, especially in our state. Our research takes a look at the figures, comparing data from New Hampshire with the region and the country, and outlines the benefits of breaking through the glass – or in our case, granite – ceiling for businesses.
