Why Focus on Women in Leadership?
Only 10% of Fortune 500 companies are led by women – APA, 2023
Women surpass males in 11 of 12 major emotional intelligence characteristics – Forbes, 2023
Boards with a higher number of women have a 53% higher return on equity – Forbes, 2014
Firms that transition from having no female leaders to 30% female leaders, report 15% increase in profitability – Harvard Business Review, 2016
Our Research Says
Women and men are equally ambitious at
the entry level
Within 18 months, the ambition levels and
aspirations of women drop by 40%
Within 5 years of starting work, the attrition increases as women undergo significant life changes
Women feel under-confident even when
they are 99% ready
Our findings also indicate that women outperform their male counterparts on most of the high-performance behaviors, therefore demonstrating that they have the inherent skill and capability to make it to the top.
Interestingly, the behaviors where women did not outperform men fall within the ‘Inspiring People’ cluster which entail the skills of ‘influence’, ‘building confidence in self & others’ and ‘presentation’ .
