This information stems from the report Women in the Boardroom: A global perspective published by Deloitte Global.

A higher representation of women does not mean that they hold top management posts. There are 6.7 percent of board chairwomen and 5 percent of female CEOs/general directors.

Highest representation in Europe

According to continent, the highest representation of women in management is in Europe (30.7 percent). However, Africa reports the highest rate of female CFOs (22.7 percent), followed by Asia (19.8 percent), and Europe (15.8 percent).

“A higher representation of women in management is very beneficial because thanks to diversity, we can advance as society,” said Country Managing Partner at Deloitte in Slovakia, Ivana Lorencovičová.

“Nevertheless, it should be heeded not only that both genders are equally represented in management, but also that the selection of board members takes into consideration a diversity of opinions, experience, etc.," she added.
