Black Women Want the Top Corporate Jobs More Than Other Women Do

Black women seek the top jobs more than women of other races.

This is such an interesting finding.

I think it reflects the fact that black women have been primary breadwinners in most black families for a generation. This is especially true among poor and working-class families.  Now, though, we have a whole generation of black women mostly raised by single mothers.  Many of those young women have educated and worked themselves into the management class.  They are a big part of the pool of black women in the higher levels of business.

So, while there are very few black women in C-level corporate jobs now, I expect that rate will rise faster than will the rate of women of other races in the top-money jobs.
