The Perfect Balance
The Wall Street Journal reports that women now hold one out of every five seats on the corporate boards of America’s 3,000 largest publicly-traded companies. This increase of women’s representation on corporate boards increased from 15 percent in 2016 to 20 percent this year, according to data from Equilar.
The latest Fortune 500 list reveals a record number of 33 women serving as chief executive officer in the highest-grossing companies. While 33 women is just 6.6 percent of all CEO positions, this is a significant increase from the 24 women CEOs included in 2018.

Kylie Jenner, the youngest member of the Jenner/Kardashian clan, is on this month’s cover of Forbes magazine as not only one of the richest self-made women, but at almost twenty-one years of age, one of the youngest. Her business, Kylie Cosmetics, had humble beginnings as a lip kit, putting her on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire, male or female. Only she’s not completely self-made. While no one can build wealth entirely alone, Ms. Jenner’s success has equally as much to do with her mother’s business savvy as it does her innate, almost inborn, sense of social influence.
