Advancing more women leaders in financial services


Advancing more women leaders in financial services

A global report

Deloitte’s Within reach series on women in financial services expands and offers strategies to help firms achieve gender equity around the world.

Key messages

  • Globally, within financial services institutions, women held 21% of board seats, 19% of C-suite roles, and 5% of CEO positions in 2021.
  • The multiplier effect—a positive, quantifiable increase, ranging between 2x–5x, of women added to senior leadership levels for each woman added to the C-suite—was observed in several locations.
  • There simply isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” path to achieve greater gender equity. But organisations that prioritise and advance gender equity internally can position themselves to influence public policy, shape or reshape cultural norms, and differentiate themselves across their spheres of influence: their workforces, the marketplace, and society as a whole.
