Women’s leadership examined in Vail event

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL – The White House Project and The Women’s Foundation of Colorado are coming together at the Christiania in Vail at 2:30 p.m. on June 25 to discuss the findings of the White House Project report, “Benchmarking Women’s Leadership.”

The study looks at the status of women’s leadership from business and politics to media and military, and provides specific recommendations from top experts to close the leadership gap found by the report.

The report says the though women may be participating in equal – or in some cases, higher – numbers than their male peers in the workforce, they are far few women in leadership positions, with numbers much lower among women of color.

“The goals of our Foundation and the mission of The White House Project complement each other perfectly- to enhance and support the leadership of women and girls throughout our wonderful state,” says Pam Smith, a Vail Valley resident and member of the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s board of trustees.

The White House Project is a national, nonpartisan organization which works to advance women into leadership. The organization has trained over 8,000 women nationwide since 2004 through its Vote, Run, Lead program. For more information on the Report, please visit http://www.thewhitehouseproject.org.
