Finally! A positive headline!

If you’re as tired as I am of those negative narratives about women’s lack of advancement, then you’ll be as delighted as I am to see this infographic summarizing a new report by the research organization Catalyst.
Here’s the good news. It’s not spin, but it is a refreshing way of telling the story:
A new Catalyst report, Women in the World, shows that advancing women’s employment status globally has a powerful ripple effect, benefitting families, communities, workplaces, economies, and societies at large.Women can change the world, but empowerment is a two-way street,“ says Deborah Gillis, President and CEO, Catalyst. “To effect the transformation we all seek, we have a responsibility to change the world for women so that they are poised to advance and help shape our future. It’s essential for women to be as educated, as capable of earning money, and as in control of their physical lives as men—not just because it’s fair, but because empowering women raises everybody’s standard of living.”

Take The Lead aims to change the narrative from problem to solution focus. This report does that and we hope to see more like it. Read, cheer, and spread the good word.
