So here’s the thing.
In Australia we have open access to education 🎓 and employment ✅ opportunities, but when we look to the top tiers of business, government and top performing ASX200 companies, women just aren’t there.
Currently, women hold just 6% of #ASX200 CEO roles (from 7% in 2018) 🤷🏻♀️; women hold only 16% of ASX200 CFO roles 🤷🏻♀️; 17 companies in the ASX200 have NO women in their executive leadership team 🤷🏻♀️; 114 companies in the ASX200 have NO women in executive leadership line roles 🤷🏻♀️; and only 24 companies in the ASX200 have gender balance (40%-60% women) in their executive leadership team ... ⚖️⁉️
A report just released from the Chief Executive Women (CEW) ASX200 Senior Executive Census 2019 shows just 12 of Australia's top listed companies have a woman chief executive, a drop from 14 last year.
And the number of women running top ASX-listed companies has gone backwards with women being appointed to only TWO 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ of 25 new chief executive positions in 2018.
How do we shift the dial?
How do we balance this out?
How do we level the playing field?
This needs to change.
