Mass. lags behind other states in share of women leaders

Massachusetts is often held up as forward thinking, but when it comes to women moving into corporate boardrooms and executive suites, Massachusetts lags behind other states, according to a report released Thursday by the Boston Club, which works for the advancement of women leaders.

More women are reaching the top echelons of the state’s 100 largest public companies, the report found. But in a survey of 18 states, Massachusetts ranked eighth for percentage of women directors, according to a Boston Club analysis of data from the InterOrganization Network, a national women in business advocacy group.
