    Although significant progress has been made in reducing gender inequality since the 1960’s, women still lag behind men on key economic and work measures, including leadership representation.  In this moderated session, Dr. Yavorsky (Assistant Professor in Sociology and Organizational Science at University of North Carolina Charlotte) will answer critical questions about what the latest research says about the current state of gender equality and women's access to leadership and top income positions. Dr. Yavorsky will also discuss what challenges diverse groups of women face in rising to leadership roles and what needs to occur to jump start gender equality in the workplace. Throughout, Dr. Yavorsky will interweave findings from her own scientific research and how such studies contribute to our understanding of patterns and mechanisms of gender inequality.
