Highlights from Women in Leadership 2019 Report
The report is a collaborative effort between The Forum and PwC. Read More
Progress toward putting more women in positions of top leadership at the region’s 100 largest public companies is moving at a slow pace.
These are the companies who had 30% or more women on their boards in 2018.
More progress is needed to increase the percentage of female top earners.
While the big picture shows that women are advancing in the boardroom, the same cannot be said of women in the executive suites.
Vision & Mission
We are executive women working together to increase the number of women in leadership roles, expand their impact and influence, and position them to drive positive change in the region. The Forum of Executive Women is recognized as the source for leveraging the collective power of women's leadership in the Philadelphia region.
