CIMA’s report highlights how women frequently face additional challenges to advancing in male-dominated industries, and contains advice for employers on how to nurture and capitalise on female talent.
Key findings include:
- Having more women in senior roles is linked to stronger financial performance.
- Women leaders work in different ways from men and can bring real competitive advantage to business.
- However, women still lag behind men in terms of seniority and salary. This becomes particularly significant after ten years’ work experience.
- Individual strategies for success include getting support from a mentor, promoting your achievements and joining female networks.
