Andi Danis will share the latest AAUW research on Barriers & Bias: Women in Leadership. What has held women back in elected, corporate, and nonprofit positions?  How has this affected society?  We will discuss the reasons and what we can do. Why do men still vastly outnumber women in leadership positions?
