Not enough women in top positions

This is according to Grant Thornton’s International Business Report, "Women in Business: New perspectives on risk and reward", based on its annual survey of 5,500 businesses in 36 economies. “While this is an improvement from last year’s level of 23%, it is concerning that this number has not improved beyond 29% in all the 13 years since we started doing this survey,” said Christelle Grohmann, a director of advisory services at Grant Thornton.

The research also shows this is a global phenomenon. Female representation in senior management has a long way to go in North America (23%), the G7 economies (22%) and developed economies in Asia Pacific (13%). South Africa compares favourably, with only 31% of businesses having no women in senior management, down from 39% last year.
