Women in the C-Suite

TLA Awards and Project 5/165 lead the way

A general business publication named Crain’s ran an article recently about the very small percentage of women holding CEO, CFO and lead business development titles. Crain’s pointed out the notable exception: Women are entering the executive ranks (or the C-Suite) via general counsel positions.

While the CEO and CFO facts are disappointing, I choose today to celebrate the good news. Women are indeed leading law departments in robust numbers, and a strong pipeline of future candidates indicates a pretty straight arrow up in those numbers going forward. But I’ll leave the reporting on metrics to others.
