Inforum Center for Leadership releases its 2015 Michigan Women's Leadership Report, a snapshot of the leadership role of women in Michigan’s top 100 public companies. The Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University conducted the research for a second consecutive installment of the biennial report. Edge Partnerships designed the report again this year, bringing the research to life.

In 2015 women occupy 11.5 percent of boardroom seats in the state’s top 100 public companies – their share down slightly from 11.6 percent since 2013. Women’s representation among the top earners in their companies has declined from 9.6 percent two years ago to 8 percent in 2015. And women today hold 13 percent of executive officer positions – exactly their share in 2013.
