Women Executives Discuss Career Challenges

Women make up almost half the workforce in the United States, but they're still largely underrepresented in business leadership roles. Women held about 10 percent of the top executive positions at U.S. companies in 2016-17, according to a Pew Research Center analysis.

A study by the Women's Fund of Omaha found that women still face barriers to leadership roles, and those obstacles are compounded for women of color and LGBTQ women.

Despite this, there are several women leading organizations in Omaha. One of them is Josie Abboud, president and CEO of Methodist Hospital and Methodist Women's Hospital.
