Breaking Barriers...for the Next Generation

For over a decade, the comparison between the median earnings of full-time employed men and women in the United States has remained a stubborn 77%.

- Forbes

Although women now hold 51.5% of positions in management, professional, and other related occupations, their advancement to senior leadership positions continues to be stifled.  Just 14.6% of executive officer positions and 4.5% of Fortune 1000 positions are held by women.

George Mason's School of Business and its Women in Business Initiative aims to change this by providing current students, alumnae, and businesswomen a unique platform of engagement for professional development and networking.
