As a woman who is still relatively new to the business continuity world, I thought it would be interesting to write a blog around ladies within this industry.  Shortly into my research, an apparent pattern emerged in my search results:  there is a gender gap in business continuity management- women are perpetually underrepresented.  Gartner released a survey to almost 400 executives that revealed the ratio of men to women within business continuity management is almost 5 to 1.  It went on to say that male executives outnumbered female executives almost 3 to 1.  I also came across a blog post where the author went onto LinkedIn and searched for women with the word “resilience” in their job title, only to find less than 5 show up on the first 3 pages.
