Research Shows That Networking And A Solid Inner Circle Is How Women Get Ahead In Business

By Sammie Roskind

A study by the Northwestern University and the University of Notre Dame proves that support and guidance between women affect a woman’s chance of obtaining a leadership position. This study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and they essentially followed 700 alumni students from a top ranked business school. The size of each person’s social network, the strength of networks, and amount of same sex contacts were investigated. Through this investigation, it was conveyed that 75% of high-ranked women were included in female-dominated circles. These female-dominated circles are said to be 2.5 times greater than small women networks and male-dominated networks as well. In all, it is significant that women who wish to be successful should get involved in women-dominated inner circles.
