WASHINGTON (AP) - Nancy Pelosi and Condoleezza Rice have plenty of company.
When it comes to high-powered women, the Washington region leads the country's major metro areas by at least one measure.
A report from the Greater Washington Initiative says the region has the country's highest concentration of female executives.
The region has 14-thousand women in a category that includes chief executives, chief financial officers and executive directors at nonprofits and top government jobs.
The report also predicts that job growth in the private sector will far surpass that of the federal work force by 2012.
