Greater gender diversity in companies’ management improves their financial performance. A new Credit Suisse Research Institute study presents the financial evidence, looks at which regions and sectors show higher diversity levels and analyzes the obstacles to female participation in the workplace.
The study is based on the proprietary “Credit Suisse Gender 3000” database, which the researchers developed by mapping the board structures and senior management of more than 3,000 companies worldwide. It composed of more than 28,000 senior managers, of which nearly 3,700 were women.
