The CS Gender 3000 in 2019: The changing face of companies

Since 2012, the Credit Suisse Research Institute has been researching gender diversity within the governance and executive leadership teams. This unique contribution analyzes executive teams of over 3,000 companies comprising 30,000 executive positions from 56 different countries. The 2019 edition's findings show an increase of gender diversity in the boardroom but not in executive positions. Globally, less than 5% of the analyzed companies have female CEOs and 15% in CFO roles. Looking at the different regions, the USA and APAC reflect greater management diversity than Europe, with Europe retaining the greatest tailwind of government policies seeking to address gender diversity within supervisory boards. The report also presents new themes and analysis to complement prior work looking at family owned businesses, a discussion around the macro economic impact of increased female labor participation and fertility rates as well as the gender pay gap.
