ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Women occupy only about 14 percent of the seats on the boards of Minnesota's 100 largest public companies.
A study by St. Catherine University says that figure is in line with 2008 and 2009 numbers. The study also found that women hold about 16 percent of CEO and other executive positions in the same 100 companies.
Professor Rebecca Hawthorne tells Minnesota Public Radio News that more women will be in the boardroom if CEOs carve out a clear diversity policy, implement and monitor it.
Hawthorne says women currently hold about half the middle management jobs in the business world, but they're not moving to corporate boards or executive seats.
