To elevate women in the workplace, small, actionable steps can lead to meaningful change.
That starts with companies taking a look at their own management teams to ensure that women are present and included, said Amy Nelson, founder and CEO of The Riveter, a network and community for working women that launched in 2017.
Nelson spoke Thursday to about 500 attendees at Women Driving Auto Retail, an event hosted by NADA. She said companies can work to improve women's participation on leadership teams and make the workplace more welcoming.
"Think about how you can make that change over time. We make goals every year and every quarter," she said. "Make it a goal to diversify the leadership."
