Gender Balance in Business Leadership

Creating an environment of equality and collaboration in the workplace should be a priority. What if hiring more women for leadership roles encouraged a healthier company culture?

Men vs. Women in Business:

There has always been a strong male presence in business, especially in leadership roles. In the past, this was seen as the socially acceptable nature of business.

However, for many years women have fought long and hard for their place in the corporate world. About 87 percent of companies worldwide have a minimum of one woman in a management position, according to Catalyst data for 2019. According to the same research, the highest number of women in senior management positions was achieved last year. Women have made outstanding progress, but even today, there is still an imbalanced gender ratio in business. In 2019, men made up 71 per cent of those in management positions worldwide, according to Catalyst.
