The staffing industry, like many male-dominated industries, is diverse and inclusive at the entry-level, with a workforce evenly split by gender. Why does that drop so precipitously to 21% at the C-Suite and to only 4% for women of color*? It’s past time to change that.
Together We Rise may help us do exactly that. Exemplifying the power of women supporting women, it is the brainchild of an informal group of staffing industry leaders who came together during the pandemic and formed The Lady Leaders Book Club. Together We Rise recounts pivotal moments in their lives and careers, including struggles to rise up and stand out in one of the many industries today with too few women at the highest ranks.
