Women in the boardroom: Fifth edition

A global perspective

Women are still largely under-represented on corporate boards globally, despite continued efforts to improve boardroom gender diversity. Our fifth edition of our Women in the Boardroom report outlines efforts in over 60 countries to increase the number of women occupying board seats.

The 5th edition of our Women in the Boardroom report outlines efforts in over 60 countries to increase the number of women occupying board seats. The report also features perspectives of four non-executive directors from Australia, Japan, UK, and US into how boardroom diversity is progressing in their parts of the world.

Highlights include:
  • Women hold 15 percent of board seats worldwide, a slight increase from our previous edition
  • Organisations with women in the top leadership positions have almost double the number of board seats held by women
  • Women hold only four percent of CEO and board chair positions globally.
