"It is well-known that diversity is not only good for business in today’s global environment but essential for companies to maintain their profitability. Gender diversification at the upper echelons of business management and corporate governance is vital for New York State companies to widen their pool of diverse skills, talent and experience by having more women in leadership positions. Women are good for business. In a “win-win” strategy, our mission is to also help make business good for women too."
