Mass. fellowships aim to elevate women in business

The Patrick administration will fund at least a dozen yearlong graduate fellowships to place women in state managerial jobs at full salary, with the aim of helping more of them gain entrance to the executive suites in government and private organizations.

The program, expected to cost roughly $1 million in its first year, follows recent studies that show Massachusetts is not keeping pace with other states in terms of women achieving leadership posts. One report, for example, found that more than half the state’s largest publicly traded companies did not have any female executive officers.
