Re: women executives
@Broadway- Well, it depends on how you measure progress. The US is well behind most European countries in terms of female executives and board memebers. Though there exceptions (Germany, for example).
When compared outside of Europe, the US is better, but not as good as you'd think. Japan is probably the worst when it comes to female executives and board members. It is so bad there that they have mad "womenomics" a part of theit economic strategy. They are making active efforts to encourage more female leadership.
But really, if you check out some of the charts in the paper attached you can see our numbers really aren't impressive globally.
