Sarah Friar - Chief Financial Officer, Square
“Women really do benefit from community and networking with other business owners. They garner more confidence; it’s a great way to problem solve… If you look at all of the stats on women they’re still pretty bad, frankly,… In the Fortune 500 firms, only about 5 per cent are female. Out of 500 CEO jobs, only 26 are with women. That’s insane… It feels like people are willing to do all sorts of things to make their company run better – except, it would appear, add diversity to their leadership teams. Maybe it’s time to call them out on that.”
