What Women Want — And Why You Want Women
Having more women on boards and commissions is NOT important just because we think it would be cool to have more women in leadership positions. It is important to the future of our state because having more women on boards has proven to increase results for any entity, community, or business. And that would be a very good thing for South Carolina.
Organizations that understand the importance of women in their leadership ranks are winning big. In addition to doubling the talent pool, recruiting women usually delivers the following:
- Improved fiscal performance;
- Increased trust, and reputation;
- More innovation;
- And the different viewpoints and thinking styles in the group help solve problems faster.
That’s not just my opinion and observation, but these statistics are well-documented by Catalyst, Forbes and others. So, step up and be part of the solution. Apply for a board or commission in your community today.
