Executive Employment Contract Terms for Women CEOs
Updated: Dec 29, 2021
Despite significant advances in employment laws, gender inequality remains an area of both concern and controversy. Women continue to lag behind men, even at the CEO, C-suite and senior executive level, when it comes to executive compensation, opportunity for advancement, job status and equity sharing, to name just a few.
Many women still have to prove themselves as trail blazers for their gender in all-male executive management teams that still operate as the “old boys club” with a locker room mentality toward women.
On April 25, 2017, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “Executive Employment Contracts for Women CEOs — Terms and Negotiations.” This article discusses hurdles faced today by women with regard to
Hiring — achieving equal pay, benefits and other key terms in hiring
Change of Control — achieving equal treatment for contributions made that have brought about a successful exit and change of control for the company
Harassment & Termination — Circumstances where despite their professional attitude and achievements, women are not judged on merit, but instead face gender-based workplace harassment, threatened and even actual employment termination.
In each instance this article discusses not only these circumstances but also actions for women CEOs and senior executives to take to protect their interests, obtain their proper rights and benefits, and continue their path of career advancement.
My article on this subject was published March 27, 2017 by CEOWorld magazine.
