64% of leaders are men, but not at Women in Naturals Expo East 2012

The Women in Naturals networking event, sponsored by Reserveage Organics, was packed Sept. 21 at Natural Products Expo East 2012 with some of the best leaders in industry. The event championed support for women through DAWN and gave an inspiring glimpse into the many roles women play in the workplace.

According to a 2011 survey reported in the Harvard Business Review, 64 percent of leaders are men. But of the 7,280 leaders surveyed "at every level, more women were rated by their peers, their bosses, their direct reports, and their other associates as better overall leaders than their male counterparts—and the higher the level, the wider that gap grows."

We highlight several of the event's leading attendees (men welcome!).
