Jobs for the Boys? – Women in Leadership, a Global Perspective
A new report on global diversity in the boardroom from INAC, an international network of executive search consultancies, has found that while progress on the gender divide is being made – only 5% of the CEOs of the world’s largest corporations are women.
The recent publication of the latest “Women on Boards” report has thrown the issue of workplace diversity right back into the spotlight. This Government initiative started back in 2011 when firms were told to more than double the number of women on their boards by 2015, or face Government measures. Since then there does seem to have been progress with the latest report showing that women account for 20.7% of board positions in the FTSE 100, an increase from 12.5% in 2011 and 17.3% in April 2013.
Read the latest report now to discover the current situation on board diversity.
