More women are taking control in boardrooms across America. In fact, you’ll find more at companies, such as Corp. (NEO:COIN)(FSE:76M), Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), Bumble Inc. (NASDAQ:BMBL), Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C), and Nasdaq Inc. (NASDAQ:NDAQ). In fact, according to NBC News, a record number of women took over Fortune 500 companies in 2020. In addition, “During the first quarter of 2021, 41 women will lead Fortune 500 companies. That’s just 8.2 percent, but an improvement from the 33 companies in 2019 and 24 in 2018. Going back 20 years, there were just two companies on the list that were run by women, according to Fortune.”

After all, “Diversity of thought leads to diversity of action which is critical for the performance, culture, and survival of our largest corporations,” Therese Gedda, an executive coach and future of work expert, told NBC News. “This is even more important with the range of uncertainties we are likely to face in the coming decades,” added NBC News.
