Constance St. Germain, Ed.D, J.D., Executive Dean, University of Phoenix:

In 2016 America hit a milestone: The most female CEOs ever.  But despite these cracks in the “glass ceiling,” a new study found that only 34 percent of Americans say they’ve worked for a company with a female president and, only 33 percent of respondents believe women make the same amount as their male counterparts.

On the eve of International Women’s Day, Constance St. Germain, University of Phoenix, is available to discuss the gender gap in the workplace and its impact on your career and home life. She’ll share strategies to stepping into leadership roles, being fairly compensated and advocating for inclusive policies.

Dr. St. Germain, whose research focuses on women and leadership, will also share tips to achieving better work/home balance. According to the study, 66 percent of women say they spend more time on household chores than their spouse, while 64 percent say their spouse has a higher salary than they do.
