Abstract

At Fortune 500 companies, women account for just 15% of C-suite executives, and 5% of CEOs. African American women hold around 1.5% of these positions. Even though the number of women in these positions is growing slowly, the percentage of African American women is becoming more and more nonexistent. Are African American women not qualified? Are they afforded these opportunities as white males and females? This paper will focus on different reasons for the lack of diversity in these large organizations and what solutions may help change the lack of diversity.
