The platform has been launched to address the national leadership gap for women. It’s approximated that almost 50.8% of the US population are women, yet their representation in top leadership positions is still remarkably low, with only 20% holding board seats and only 6% in CEO roles, despite education and training. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that 60% of the people who earn undergraduate degrees are women, and 60% of the people who earn master’s degrees are women. In addition to connecting women to a number of leadership opportunities, BossMakeHer is home to a private forum for female leaders to share their job search insights, leads, and challenges with one other for co-created momentum.
For executives who are too busy with their current workload to network, BossMakeHer also offers a white-glove service.
BossMakeHer is a sister site of the broader Women’s Job Search Network, which has world-class partners such as Uber and ThoughtWorks, Inc. The board of Women’s Job Search Network is also made up of powerful executive female advisors.
