Corporate america has been "a man's world" for the past many decades. However, the paradigm is shifting in that the glass celing is being shattered, removed, and eliminated.
"Whatever preconceived notions you have about women in your workplace, women in general, women and business ownership - throw them out, they are myths. Looks like the 2000s will be the decades of the woman." - Mauricio Velasquez, President & CEO, DTG
Since 1984, the number of women in graduate school has exceeded the number of men twofold, according to the Associated Press. Also women own more than 47% of company stocks, and women are projected to acquire over 85% of the $12 trillion growth of the U.S. private wealth between 1998 and 2012. Women in the U.S. currently spend more than $3.3 trillion annually (purchasing power), and 95% of family financial decisions are made by women. Additionally statistics show that women entrepreneurs are projected to triple over the next 5 years.
The world looks bright for not only women in the workplace but women in general. Now is the time for all women to pursue their career goals, personal goals, and most importantly, their life dreams and passion. We are the future, and it IS becoming a true "WOMAN'S WORLD!"
