About RSWG

  • Did You Know?

    • There are only 17 women CEOs among California’s 400 largest public companies.
    • 46% of all California firms are owned or co-owned by women.
    • California is one of the nation’s largest television and film production centers, yet over the last 15 years, fewer than one in five directors, writers or producers have been women.

    And those are just a few things we know about the status of women in California.
