Where are you on the Women in Leadership Continuum?

Home / blog / Where are you on the Women in Leadership Continuum?

In mid-April, International Women’s Day was celebrated in Australia. In parallel with this event, EOWA (Equal Employment Opportunity in the Workplace) launched its latest statistics.

In the table below, you can see for yourself that for yet another year, little has shifted in the number of women on Boards or in executive positions. This prompted wide-ranging comment in the popular media about the lack of gender equity within organisations and that women are still under-represented in senior leadership roles and on boards.
