A Dozen Female Executives at Wells Fargo Gathered for an Internal Conference to Discuss Gender Bias Within the Firm

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

In June, approximately a dozen female executives in Wells Fargo’s management division gathered in Scottsdale, Arizona to discuss their frustration over how the firm has handled issues relating to gender discrimination and gender inequality. 12 out of the 45 female regional managers of Wells Fargo’s wealth management division attended the meeting.

During the meeting, the executives discussed Wells Fargo’s ongoing investigation regarding complaints of gender bias in its wealth-management division. In addition, the attendees discussed the lack of female employees in senior roles at the firm. More specifically, they discussed how to change the fact that, at Wells Fargo, there are fewer management role positions occupied by women compared to other firms around the country.
