With a long history of educating strong women, Meredith is positioned to take on national prominence as a leading source of important research on selected women’s issues. Building on the momentum of The Status of Girls in North Carolina report, the College released The Status of Women in North Carolina Politics and launched The Meredith College Poll – both of which offer insight into how the state’s citizens perceive women as political leaders.
As Meredith continues to conduct vital research for and about women, future areas of focus may include women and their workplace conditions, earnings, education, work patterns, and leadership development.
Meredith College has released a new report that examines The Status of Women in North Carolina Politics. The report covers the political offices held by women and offers solutions to improving women’s representation. The release of the report on The Status of Women in North Carolina Politics was part of Meredith’s weeklong focus on women in public service during which the College also released the results of its inaugural Meredith College Poll, focused on voter opinions about women in politics, and presented its 2015 Woman of Achievement Award to former North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Sarah Parker.
