Professional women are more confident than ever before — and taking a more positive mindset in their approach to their careers.

But challenges and barriers toward advancing women in senior leadership still exist, and organizations need to be proactive in creating a culture of gender intelligence.

Those were among the key findings of a study documenting the experiences of executive women across North America. On behalf of Women of Influence and Thomson Reuters, Barbara Annis & Associates conducted an in-depth survey of 326 women in senior leadership positions. The results were the basis for the whitepaper Solutions to Women’s Advancement.
