This article reports that the Network of Executive Women has issued a new report urging action on the promotion of women of color in the consumer products and retail industry. The report, "Women of Color: The Challenge and Opportunity Ahead," includes a 10-point corporate action plan to help address what it calls the stubborn lack of progress in promoting women of color to senior management positions. The non-profit association says that women of color lag behind not only white men but white women in promotion and pay.
