Just like last year, 88% of the members measured the glass ceilings in their organisation. Again, financial institutions distinguish at least two glass ceilings in their structure. The first ceiling is for many already visible from middle management onwards. The second from senior management (board members).
Today, the average Glass Ceiling Index of Women in Finance members is 50, whereas in 2019 it was 43.02. While that is a strong positive evolution, it also means that our sector still has two times less women in senior management positions compared to the entire workforce. Put another way, women today represent 52.4% of the entire workforce, while holding senior positions in only 28.9% of the cases.
