Why So Few?
Looking over the leadership roster of Fortune 500 companies leads to a painfully obvious observation: there are very few women sitting in the top positions. Despite the advancements women have made in education - making up more than half the population of university applicants - these numbers are not reflected in corporate America.
Why is there a lack of women in the top positions? Is it a lack of ambition? A lack of resources? It most certainly is not a lack of talent.

Through skill development workshops, leadership conferences, career exposes, and mentorship programs, Stanford Women in Business is helping young women find career direction, develop their professional networks, and set and achieve ambitious career goals.
Stanford Women in Business was nominated for the Dean's List of Outstanding Student groups for its contribution to the Stanford Community in its first year. It is now in its ninth year as an organization, and has established a presence as a dominant pre-professional group for Stanford undergraduates.
