UW-Green Bay’s Institute for Women’s Leadership and New North, Inc. are collaborating to gain regional insights and find out the barriers that keep women from leadership. The survey is open until Friday, July 30.
Women compose just under 50% of the regional workforce, statewide that number is 63.4%*, giving Wisconsin a “C” grade,” said Institute for Women’s Leadership Executive Director Teri Zuege-Halvorsen.
“While much data exists at the national level about women in the workforce, local trends on matters crucial to the success of working women are limited. The intent of the survey is to address that gap, fueling the attracting, retaining and encouraging of qualified talent with Institute initiatives and collaborations.”
The survey is open to all individuals who identify as female and are currently working. It is live on the Institute’s website and remains open through Friday, July 30, 2021. The survey is estimated to take 10 minutes to complete with the experience optimal on a laptop or desktop computer. The survey is anonymous, and the results will be used to attract, retain and develop women in the New North 18-county region.
