'Significant change' | Why THIS is driving applications in female senior leaders

Why THIS is driving applications in female senior leaders

Whilst HR may well have felt overwhelmed with the changes to the workplace as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, key initiatives under its remit such as D&I still require investment. And whilst much has changed within the workforce as a result of the pandemic, recent research has found that women are still massively under-represented within top-ranking positions. 

For example, in the UK, women hold just 30% of all senior leadership roles, with just 23% holding executive titles and 29% holding senior manager titles. What’s more, women hold just four per cent of all CEO roles in S&P 500 FIRMS, according to Nichols research.
