An article by Forbes explains why female leaders are ahead of the curve when it comes to running remote teams
Among traditional brick-and-mortar companies, the percentage of female CEOs is low, despite corporate and societal efforts to progress towards gender parity, harassment-free workplaces, and pay and promotion equality. In the U.S., this figure reaches just under 5% for the Fortune 500 list and only 6.3% for the current S&P 500 list.
In virtual-working businesses, the picture is slightly different. According to Remote.co research into the number of female leaders in 128 partially or fully remote companies that have originated in the U.S., 29% of those that are completely remote have women in leadership positions, either as CEO, founder, or president.
