From the Top Down

CEOs of three ‘special distinction’ companies say that sustaining a strong corporate culture — for women and men — means focusing on customers and developing people across the organization.

Gender diversity is a strong objective and a winning business strategy for many Minnesota companies. This year, MTS Systems Corporation and Target Corporation are honored for the second time as “special distinction” companies in The Minnesota Census of Women in Corporate Leadership for their high percentage of women executive officers and directors. CyberOptics Corporation, the third “special distinction” company, is in The Minnesota Census for the first time. The chief executives of these global concerns shared their insights about leadership, board composition, and the importance of gender diversity.
