told graduates last weekend that women's career opportunties have improved, but they still have not achieved equality in compensation.
“When I graduated from Agnes Scott, the professional workforce was very male dominated, and today, 35 years later, we have achieved equality in the workforce, but not parity in compensation,” Krill said. “We now hold 54 percent of management positions, which has doubled from 1980, but sadly, female CEOs represent only 3 percent of the Fortune 1000 companies.
“The path was paved for all of you by the many assertive, smart, passionate women who wanted to make a difference, who wanted to contribute, who had great talent … Speak out, have a voice, share your opinions and ideas. The world needs to listen more to smart, insightful women like yourselves.”
Krill graduated from Agnes Scott in 1977. She went on to an executive career in the retailing sector.
