This episode of the podcast series “Women are the Business” talks about the power imbalance between the sexes.
Even though the percentage of women in Australian boardrooms is 7% – far better than Switzerland’s 2% – Australians are still not satisfied. Women are significantly underrepresented in decision-making positions, and the problem worsens the higher up you go. Stereotypes and leadership styles are often to blame for the fact that women are rarely CEOs.
Podcast producers talk to Jan West and Sue Morphet, as well as leadership expert Jen Overbeck, to tacke hot-button solutions, like quotas.
