"Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world"

I couldn't agree more with the above quote. Today, being the international women's day, calls for a post focusing on the Business schools which doing everything they can to increase the number of women in their MBA programs. In a society that's more open to new ideas, where every industry is ripe for technological disruption, it's a wonderful time to be a businesswoman. But is that enough? Are we doing enough to ensure that gender discrimination does not paralyse a women with tremendous leadership potential. Are there enough women at the elite MBA programs?

Only 6.4% of Fortune 500 companies are run by female CEOs, and while there is incremental progress — there are 32 female CEOs this year, the highest percentage ever, compared with only 21 last year — the rate of change can feel excruciatingly slow. The goal of ensuring a constant outflow of female CEOs is an ambitious one that likely means rethinking everything from targeting promising leaders to “selling” career opportunities better aligned with what drives and motivates women to ensuring appropriate women participation in the elite MBA programs.

In the last 5 years, Business schools have made a significant effort to increase the women participation in their MBA courses through lavish scholarships and outreach. Earlier, only three of the top 25 U.S. schools had 40% or more women in their MBA programs. That number presently stand at 13. Yes, 13 schools. However, women in business are still outnumbered at the top b-schools. As per a GMAC's report :-
  • The share of women in MBA classrooms has consistently remained below 50 percent in parity to men, yet women are at or near parity in many non-MBA master's programs. Even so, women are more likely than men to hold the MBA degree in high regard.
  • Overall, women are more pragmatic and outcomes-focused in their approach to GME, and are less intimidated by standardized testing than their male peers.
  • Women in Western countries differ in their motivations and approaches to the application journey than women in emerging economies like China and India.
  • Challenges related to funding are significant barriers for women.

We need more women in business. We need more women in senate. We need more women in the elite MBA programs. After all, they represent half of the world’s talent base! Speaking for myself-Women are better team players than men. Here's the 5 year trend for women enrollment at the worlds most elite MBA programs. I hope this trend continues in future by many a fold.

And hey, a very happy International Women's Day to all the incredibly strong women out there. Cheers!

Hi stonecold. Thank you so much for being an ally to women in the workplace and for your advocacy for increased numbers in the percentage of women at elite programs.
A quick point to add: there are hundreds of stock photos that might have been used for your post to portray the role of women in the workplace. Consider one or two of these instead.

Hi,

Thank you for your kind words.
I’ve been extremely fortunate to follow, learn from, and be led by countless amazing women in my life. Women have the power to rise up in a world tailored against them and change it. I had millions of photos at my disposal but I chose the one I really liked. It was a split second decision and there is nothing more to that. Happy International Women's Day!


P.S :- The women in the photo is Meghan Markle who is doing an outstanding job in raising her voice against gender discrimination.
