Who’s running California companies? When it comes to women in the corner office, many of the largest companies in the state have hung out a "Men Only" sign according to a new study released Monday by the University of California, Davis.
Nearly half of the state’s 400 largest public companies have no women in a top executive position or on the board of directors.
Nicole Woolsey Biggart, dean of the UC Davis Graduate School of Management, will present the survey’s findings Monday.
"It's a disappointment, clearly. I think it's a missed opportunity to include a more diverse pool at the top of California's corporations," Biggart said in a published article. "But, we're not going away. Once a year, we'll continue to shine a spotlight on what the top of corporations look like."
