My name is Richard Madison and I am the marketing executive for the Brighton School of Business & Management. I regularly write about interesting topics in relation to Leadership and Management, and to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day on October 14th, I have created an infographic on the topic of "Extraordinary Women Leaders throughout History."

Ada Lovelace was an extraordinary mind, and as the world's first computer programmer, established herself as one of the greatest female leaders of all time. Leadership is an extraordinary human quality, and leadership in the face of adversity is inspirational. From politics to science, technology to philanthropy, this infographic takes a look at inspirational and influential women pioneers from history and explores the current status of female leadership.

AS YOU MOVE UP THE ORGANIZATION = FEWER WOMEN

Women make up more than half of the workforce

Traditionally senior executives and boards of directors put men into senior positions, fearing that women would not perform well at higher levels

However, as women move up the ladder in an organization, the higher they move the more positively they are perceived, even more so than their male counterparts.
