High-growth, entrepreneurial-centered companies in Michigan are more likely than publicly traded companies to hire a woman in a key leadership role, according to the Michigan Entrepreneurial Leadership Report by the Inforum Center for Leadership and Ernst & Young LLP.

In fact, the study finds that 61 percent of respondents say they have at least one woman sitting in a C-level or equivalent senior leadership position in their organizations while 87 percent of respondents say they employ at least one woman in a leadership role managing a division or department and immediately reporting to the CEO or most senior position in the company. However, 49 percent of Michigan's top 100 public companies do not employ any female top-level executives.

Another 69 percent of respondents with a board of directors have one woman member at minimum. Among respondents with a board of advisors, 64 percent include at least one woman member while 53 percent of Michigan's top 100 private companies have at least one woman director.
