This was the first in a series of podcasts on corporations and organizations that are achieving improvements or reaching their goals with having more women and diversification within leadership roles at their company or organization. If your company has achieved success in this area, and are willing to share their story and ideas, we would love to hear from you for a future podcast. Contact Julia O'Connor.
