We have some very exciting news to share! Two of our S3 leaders have been honored by being included in the Global Power 100 – Women in Staffing.

Among the 100, there are policymakers, businesspersons, technologists, crusaders, leaders, etc., all wearing hats of different shapes and sizes. But there’s one thing they have in common: A love for promoting and shaping talent.

However, only a very small number make it to boardrooms and positions of leadership. On average, women comprise only 6% of board seats at the 27 public staffing firms in the United States.
