Companies with more female executives make more money—here's why
March 8, 2018
Among the world's largest 500 companies, only 10.9 percent of senior executives are women, according to Weber Schandwick's Gender Forward Pioneer Index. A significant share of the companies, 37 percent, have all-male leadership teams, while an additional 21 percent have only one woman.
That's their loss, because there's substantial evidence that gender diversity at the management level enhances a company's performance.
While researchers are still trying to figure out exactly why companies with more women at the top make more money, here's what they know so far.
