Getting Past Stereotypes That Limit Women’s Power | Big Think | Genderomics | Scoop.it
It isn’t that women desire power less than men do, but in traditional organizations some common avenues to obtaining and maintaining power are blocked for them.  A host of stereotypes will continue to limit women’s power unless they remain alert to the problem and take steps to remedy it.  Powerful ...

ThanksForegoing children has obvious downsides for society, such as jeopardizing its continued existence.

Sue Liburd's insight:

Thanks to Adrian Logan, a sales development specialist for bringing this to my attention. One of the most unconscious drivers behind gender inequality in my opinion is women being held to higher standards and this influencing the unreadiness to choose women for top positions.

The Global Gender Gap Report 2014

http://www.weforum.org The 9th edition of the report has arrived.

Sue Liburd's insight:

The 9th edition of the Gender Gap Report has arrived. No Country has yet closed the Gender Gap! Gender leaders and practitioners still have work to do.  

 

Progress is being made - among the 142 countries measured, the gender gap is narrowest in terms of health and survival. This gap stands at 96% globally, with 35 countries having closed the gap entirely. The gender gap for economic participation and opportunity lags stubbornly behind and the gap for political empowerment still has a long way to go.

 

We have posted the full report on our website: www.genderomics.com

Gender equality at board level: how does the recruitment industry fare?

Gender equality at board level: how does the recruitment industry fare? | Genderomics | Scoop.it
This Article written by: Annie Makoff The proportion of women in top-level roles is very much on the agenda once again, spurred on by various industry reports, latest quotas and workplace trends. Yet the recruitment industry, the very sector which binds markets and industries together, tends to be the most overlooked. It’s why the Women in Recruitment (WIR) initiative - re-launched in April in collaboration with the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) - is so relevant. According to industry research, whilst 56% of women make up senior staffing levels in the recruitment industry, just 23% actually sit at board level positions. Deb Pettingill, director at recruitment consultancy ep professional, describes this as ‘puzzling’, particularly because there is a large female talent pool at senior levels that could progress to board level.
