The representation of women in corporate leadership is coming under increasing scrutiny as stakeholders demand a greater degree of commitment to progress on gender equity.
“During a very challenging year for business, it has been amazing to see these HERoes Women Role Models step up to champion inclusion at their organisations and step forward to inspire the next generation of women business leaders. All of these global role models are taking action to dismantle the barriers to progression and create new opportunities for women to be successful in the workplace.”Suki Sandhu OBE, Founder & CEO, INvolve
This infographic looks at Gender Balance, D&I and leadership trends across the globe, paying special attention to the regions that include members of the HERoes Women Role Model lists, highlighting individuals that lead by example to drive change, increasing gender balance in the workplace.
There is evidence that having more women in influential board-level positions improves non-board gender balance. If not enough women are gaining the corporate experience necessary to qualify for the most powerful board roles, such as CEO, this may slow progress towards achieving equity at the highest levels of corporate power.
