Women are included in the senior management of 89% of Russian companies, the highest rate among major countries. This is followed by the Philippines at 85% and the United States in third place with a 75% rate, according to a poll conducted by Grant Thornton reported by Reuters.
Even with a higher concentration of women in the upper echelons of Russian business though, there is a certain watered down effect once the headcount is taken. Overall, women accounted for only 42% of the total senior management posts in Russia.
On the other end,theNetherlands and Pakistan, each with 27%, were at the bottom. Japan, with only 29%, rounded out the bottom of the pile. When examining the total number of women in senior management posts, Japan only had 8%, the lowest total of the 6,900 medium-sized businesses from 26 major countries and territories examined in September and October last year.
