Ohio Ranks Poorly for Women in Executive Posts

Politically liberal states are not necessarily so progressive when it comes to gender diversity in the C-suite, a new poll found.

Montana, which has cast its three electoral votes for Democratic presidential candidates only twice since 1952, has the highest percentage of women in the executive suite at 40.9 percent, according to the survey conducted by DiscoverOrg.

One-third of executives in Alaska, a red state with a higher male/female ratio than any other in the United States (52 percent), are women. Alabama, which has voted overwhelmingly Republican in the last 10 elections, came in at 29.84 percent.

The survey of almost 45,000 executives put the national average at 24.8 percent.

Ohio ranked poorly, coming in at No. 44 in the country with women making up just 20.76 percent of companies’ executive leadership.
