Did you know that 33 per cent of companies globally still don’t have any females in senior leadership positions?

Despite numerous initiatives around the world, many companies do not have any female senior leaders. Here in the UK, it was recently reported that the drive for women on boards has come to a halt. Research, conducted by The Pipeline, found that the percentage of women on FTSE 350 executive committees has been stuck on 16 per cent as of April 2017. This is the same level as recorded in the previous year.

The study also found that the number of companies that have no female presence on their executive committees has increased by eight on last year’s level.

This is far below the government’s latest target of a minimum of 33 per cent of female senior executives by 2020, as set out by the Hampton-Alexander Review.

To highlight the lack of women on boards, Market Inspector has created an interactive map illustrating the landscape of gender equality in the workforce around the world. The map uses data collected from the Credit Suisse 3000 report.

You can click on the various countries to find out information about the percentage of female board members in 2013 and 2015, as well as the gender diversity in management positions in 2016.

In addition to the interactive map, Market Inspector created an informative video on the overall issue of gender equality in the workplace around the world. We combined the data from the Credit Suisse report, as well as the Davies Report in the UK.
