Muffet McGraw on female leadership

The Notre Dame coach of 32 seasons is a powerful voice for athletics and leadership. She made some strong points at a press conference for the Final Four last week:

“We don’t have enough female role models,” McGraw said. “We don’t have enough visible women leaders. We don’t have enough women in power.”

“All these millions of girls that play sports across the country, we’re teaching them great things about life skills. But wouldn’t it be great if we could teach them to watch how women lead? This is a path for you to take to get to the point where in this country we have 50 percent of women in power. We have right now less than 5 percent of CEOs of Fortune 500 companies.”
