Vermont’s economy depends on women advancing
As our population ages, our number of skilled, reliable employees is shrinking. This challenge is only going to deepen in the coming years.
One response for our state is to attract new people to Vermont who can fill the roles played by those who are moving out of the workforce. But even more important is to look within our own borders to a group of potential business leaders who already live in Vermont: women.
How do we change this reality and create more opportunities for women to enter and flourish in the workplace? What can we do within our spheres of influence and responsibility to utilize this critical pool of future leaders of our economy?
