Interviews with 59 black female executives explore intersectional invisibility and strategies to overcome it
from Harvard Business Review
Black women continue to be sorely underrepresented in leadership roles in corporate America. Currently, they make up 12.7 percent of the U.S. population, yet they represent only 1.3 percent of senior management and executive roles of S&P 500 firms, 2.2 percent of Fortune 500 boards of directors, and in a post-Ursula Burns world, there is not a single black female CEO in the Fortune 500. Despite this underrepresentation, a small subset of black women have found success as leaders and played key roles in driving organizational change.
