In honor of Women’s History Month, below are some statistics that are pleasantly surprising.
- "As of 2008, there were 2.3 million firms [that were] 50 percent or more owned by women of color."
- "Asian-American women’s companies outpaced all others in growth in numbers, employment and receipts."
- "Women are on the move… Fresh data from The 2009 Diversity Inc Top 50 Companies for Diversity® shows that women represent half the work force, slightly edging out national figures…"
Although in the world of statistics, women are still listed as a "minority group"…we are anything but. In the U.S. alone, there are 154.7 million of us — compared to 150.6 million men. Make sure you make time to pamper yourself.
