12/17/2012.8: Where Are the Women?

December 17, 2012

Speaking of StraighterLine and alternative education, The Chicago Tribune published an article surrounding resumes, jobs, and how to get your education online, with some facts about each.

The whole article is worth a read, but there are some upsetting stats, particularly about how many top-earning positions in the workplace are held by women. 8.1% of “top earner slots”, 14.3% of “executive officer positions”, and 16.6% of “board seats”. That’s a gross underrepresentation of the US population. While I knew that women were underrepresented in the workplace at the higher end, I wasn’t aware it is that bad.
