gender diversity contributes to a broader spectrum of ideas and perspectives. It allows for a more
comprehensive approach to problem-solving and decision-making, thus promoting innovation. When

According to research and a report by Forbes, CEO’s with traits like compassion and integrity earn 9.35% return on assets. Research proves that female leaders use more transformational leadership methods to help the entire organization grow.
