Central Ohio Leadership Census
Central Ohio Leadership Census: Now a part of ION!
2012 ION Report:
Follow the Leaders: It CAN Happen Here
2012 marks the first year that the Central Ohio Leadership Census partnership has submitted Ohio data for ION's annual report on women in corporate leadership in the US. The Ninth Annual Status Rport of Women Directors and Executive Officers of Public Companies in 16 Regions of the United States will be released on December 11, 2012 - check back for links to the report and Ohio's information.
The ION report is being released in conjunction with Catalyst's 2012 F500 Census update on women directors and executive officers in the Fortune 500.
The Institute on Women compiled the information for the Fortune 1000 companies in Ohio that were included in the ION report (includes the public companies only).
Companies with boards comprised of at least 30% Female Directors:
Note: Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. was also at 30% when the information for the report was gathered, but added an additional director in December 2012, dropping to their percentage to 27.3% (3 of 11).
Special thanks to 2012 summer intern Allison Yee for her contribution to this research initiative (see Aly's blog on her overall findings).
