Initially, the United States was often associated with technological and military prowess that some countries could only dream of achieving. However, the 1990s marked a turning point for the country because of the rise of a civil rights movement that advocated a sexual revolution in terms of gender equality and women’s rights. As such, there was a need for corporate leaders to consider how women’s leadership skills were commonly undermined. This book attempts to assert how organizations may be able to experience improvements in profit, productivity, and even in innovation through fully utilizing the talents of professional women. When businesses make the most of the talents of their professional women through assigning them to top management, the countries in which such businesses operate may gain competitive advantage, both locally and in the international market.
