Women dominate the professional workforce and social networks. However, they are underrepresented in tech start-ups, and in IT jobs.

The infographic also emphasizes the importance of including women on boards. For example, Fortune 500 companies that had at least 3 directors showed remarkable growth in ROI and return on equity.

In the concluding section, some statistics on women in business is provided. For example, did you know women are starting businesses at a rate of 1.5 times the national average. And that 187 million women worldwide are starting or running a business.
