According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the largest percentage of employed Asian,
white and Black women (47, 41, and 34 percent, respectively) worked in management, professional, and related occupations.
For executive level positions, however, it’s an entirely different story. In particular, Black women have certainly experienced great difficulty ascending to the highest rungs of the corporate ladder. In 2008, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reported that approximately 13.9 percent of the total private labor
force was Black or African American. They held 3.3 percent of the total Executive/Senior Official and Managerial positions, 7.6 percent of First/Mid Level Official and Managerial positions, and 7.7 percent of the Professional positions.
Black women held just 1.9 percent of board seats in the Fortune 500 compared to 12.7 percent for white women, according to the 2010 Alliance for Board Diversity Census “Missing Pieces: Women and Minorities on Fortune 500 Boards” released in May 2011. The report said that white men continue to dominate corporate boards in the Fortune 100 and Fortune 500.
Although women gained 16 board seats – 7 of them held by minority women – the overall 1.1
percentage point increase over the six-year period did not equal transformative change
