While the economic advantages of letting women lead are well-documented, women are still drastically underrepresented at the executive level. And as Equal Pay Day approaches, we remain 217 years away from being paid the same as our male counterparts. But that’s not the end of the story. Women who *are* in leadership roles are hiring more women and paying them more too. These female-led companies are hiring now.
