More than half of all management, professional and related occupations are held by women, yet women account for only five percent of the CEOs of S&P 500 companies today. The KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit is forging paths for the next generation of women leaders to move into the C-suite through high-impact leadership development content, networking, and access to today’s top leaders. KPMG today announced the 66th U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and IBM Chairman, President and CEO Ginni Rometty will share their career experiences as women leaders at this year’s Summit on June 28th.
