Jane M Klausman Women in Business Scholarship**

Women have made great strides in the pursuit of education, careers and leadership roles they were once denied. However, they still comprise a minority of leaders in the business world. According to a December 2019 list from Catalyst, 21.2 percent of S&P 500 companies’ board seats are occupied by women, and just 5.2 percent of the companies’ CEOs are women.

The Zonta Club of Alpena provides a $750 award to an area woman enrolled in her third or fourth year of an undergraduate business program.
