2.) Recent studies show that companies rake in the profits when they have women in leadership roles, yet may not be getting paid as much as men for their efforts. So, where do women stand when it comes to equality in the workplace?

Author Carol Evans, who is the President emeritus and founder of Working Mother Media, will explore gender equality in the workplace during LoHud’s next Influencers Speakers Series titled “Women at Work: How are U.S. Women Doing and What’s Next for Gender Equality?”
