The fifth edition of Deloitte’s Women in the Boardroom includes global, regional and country analysis of the progress made towards greater board diversity. The study shows that, at global level, the number of women serving on boards almost doubled under a female leadership (29%) as compared to when boards were led by a male chair (16%). The numbers are nearly identical when looking at female CEOs and the number of women serving on their boards (29%) as compared to male CEOs (15%).

Women in the Boardroom 2017 includes global, regional and country analysis of the progress made towards greater board diversity. It includes a breakdown of how well women are represented in boardrooms across six key industries—financial services; consumer business; technology; media, and telecommunications; manufacturing; life sciences and health care; and energy and resources. For the first time, the publication includes a region-by-region analysis of the relationship between corporate leadership and diversity, including Romania.
