What can universities do to empower more female graduates to become leaders?

studyinternational | March 06, 2020

As we approach International Women’s Day this Mar 8, statistics still show that women lag far behind men in leadership roles worldwide. According to Catalyst, the proportion of women in senior roles is increasing incrementally – 29 percent of senior management roles were held by women in 2019 – the highest number ever recorded. However, this proportion of women in senior leadership differs by roles. Women make up 43 per cent of human resources directors, but only 17 percent of sales directors and 16 percent of chief information officers are female. This goes to show that there is much more to be done to empower women in leadership roles across industries. Even though the higher education sector is among those industries that are still struggling to bridge the gender gap, universities can serve as the ideal platform for encouraging women to become leaders.
