Eye2Eye understands that educational, detailed research is critical to our movement. That is why we dedicate ourselves to not only conducting our own research but also collecting and analyzing other’s work as well.

For example, according to the American Sociological Association, “despite women’s rising participation in higher education… women’s hourly wages remain approximately 80 percent of men’s wages.” This is despite the fact that women have earned more bachelor’s degrees than men since 1982, and more masters degrees since 1987, according to this Catalyst report. More importantly, statistics like these show that companies with predominately female boards tend to outperform their industry competitors.

To combat the problem Eye2Eye has decided to begin doing it’s own research, right here at BU. We will present our findings at our upcoming conference
