Today is International Women’s Day.
In an effort to get more companies to hire women, State Street Global Advisors placed a bronze statue of a little girl facing down the Wall Street bull. The company is leveraging their $2.5 trillion in stocks against the 3,500 companies they are invested with in order to get more women in the workplace.
A spokesperson for SSGA says…
“She stands as a reminder…that having more women in leadership positions can lead to increased performance and a stronger economy.”
Yes! Yes! Yes!!!
