Women may have become a force in other professions, but they remain a conspicuous minority in the board rooms and executive suites of California’s 400 largest public companies, according to the sixth annual UC Davis Study of California Women Business Leaders.
A study by the University of California, Davis, found women are “a conspicuous minority” in the Golden State’s boardrooms and corner offices. Only 16 out of the 400 biggest public companies has a woman CEO. Steven Currall, the school’s dean, said “for a state that considers itself a hip, progressive trendsetter, California looks like anything but that.”
Comstock’s article on selling to big chain stores: Assistant Professor Olivier Rubel says when products from small businesses and entrepreneurs are picked up by major chain stores, it can be “both a blessing and a curse.” It can lead to greater exposure and, potentially, new markets. Selling to large retailers is proof that these small businesses are selling competitive products and able to manage larger orders. But these deals aren’t without risk, he says.
Women hold fewer than 10% of all top executive and board of directors positions within California’s 400 largest companies, according to a study released by UC Davis. The low female representation statewide is somewhat surprising for California, often viewed as a progressive trend setter. The data on the entire list of companies, featuring brands including Hewlett Packard Co. and Jack in the Box Inc., were distilled from public reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
It’s lonely for California women at the top, with a dearth of fellow females on the boards and in the executive suites of high-profile companies. Women hold only 9.5 percent of board seats and the highest-paid executive positions at the 400 largest publicly held corporations in California, a new University of California Davis study has found.
Orange County companies have the lowest female representation on their boards of directors and among their highest paid executives, according to a survey released today by UC Davis. The 6th annual survey looks at the 400 largest public companies headquartered in California, of which 48 are in Orange County. Statewide fewer than 1 in 10 directors/top-paid executives are women.
Researchers at UC Davis today released a study looking at gender diversity among the state’s 400 largest public companies. They found that men still hold roughly nine out of every 10 of the highest-paid management and board positions.

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
