Gender Diversity in Top Management

August 26, 2016
Borderless Leadership

Since 2007, McKinsey has analysed the state of gender diversity in top management through its Women Matter series. In its 2013 report ‘Gender diversity in top management’, McKinsey have looked at what women want, why change has been slow, and how corporate culture can be modified.

The study’s findings provide an interesting insight into what is holding women back, and how corporations can, and must, change. It’s another essential read ahead of the Women in Leadership Forum on 5 October as part of the CPhI Congress in Barcelona. The Forum will feature a thought-provoking session led by Borderless Consultants Rosalie Harrison and June Nilsson.
