In many ways, women have never been more prepared to take part in or to lead the most innovative and forward-thinking industries of our day.
For years, women have eclipsed men in education and training, attaining not only more bachelor’s degrees but more master’s and doctorate degrees, as well. Although egregious and disconcerting disparities in income equality persist, this education is making women an increasingly important financial provider in their family. According to the Pew Research Center, “women bring in half or more of the earnings, a significant increase from the past.”
Even less tangible measures, like ambition, reflect women’s preparedness for the workforce.
