AWIS Member Leadership Survey, 2018-2019

Regardless of sector, women, especially women of color, continue to be significantly underrepresented in leadership roles. Preliminary findings from new AWIS research shine a light on the underlying reasons why.

In the winter of 2018, we surveyed 125 AWIS members about their leadership experiences. Most survey respondents serve or have served in AWIS leadership roles, facing many gender- and race-related barriers along the way that still influence aspiring leaders’ journeys to the top.
