Women in Business and Management - Gaining Momentum

There is a growing recognition that women in senior management positions make good business sense and more women are moving into top management and starting successful enterprises than ever before. But it hasn't been, and still isn't easy. Worldwide, it's estimated just 5% of CEOs are women and male entrepreneurs outnumber women by as many as two to one. Now, companies and employers organizations are raising awareness of the qualities women bring to leadership positions and that is changing attitudes.

The ILO Bureau for Employers Activities has released a Global Report early 2015 entitled "Women in Business and Management - Gaining Momentum" which you can find here. A Video has also been published which features some of the Good Practices described in the national section of this map.
