It’s often difficult for women to get ahead in the business world… Will Donald Trump’s win widen the gender gap?
Women make up about half of the U.S. workforce, yet are still underrepresented in business startups, initial public stock offerings and in the boardrooms of established firms.
Now that Trump has won the presidential election, that could continue to be a problem.
Several issues affect women, such as wage parity and family leave rights, and it’s rare for women to receive funding from male venture capitalists.
Some women have pushed their way through the roadblocks, founding or co-founding some very profitable public companies—as well as some that were snapped up by public entities that found them complementary to their own organizations.
With a new administration in the White House come January, will success stories like these soon become the exception?
