Though the gender gap in the corporate world has narrowed over the last few decades, women still have a lot of ground to cover before they are equally represented in top positions in business. A big step toward closing the gap starts with business schools. The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business outlined its commitment to closing the gap in March, announcing its 50/50 by 2020 Pledge.

In this edition of Smith Business Close-Up, host Jeff Salkin sits down with Vice Dean Joyce Russell to talk about the Smith School’s pledge and why it is critical to attract more women to business.
