Despite the fact that over the last few decades, women have been less prominent than men within the world of business, it seems that more and more women are on the rise! Recent data revealed that more women will hold management positions in the future and that it is possible we will have a lot more female CEOs and executives running a business in the US.
This infographic from Career Glider presents some very useful data in regards to the rise of women executives and explains why the business landscape is changing.
