Citywealth is delighted to open its fifth year awards programme to champion women in the wealth sector and highlight the female leaders of today and tomorrow. The awards spotlight individuals and companies who support care giving responsibilities, female leadership, and celebrate diversity. Globally, women hold approximately one in five senior management roles, and fewer than one in ten businesses have a female CEO; of Financial Times top 500 companies, women represent 1.8% of CEOs and hold 10% of board seats. By working together and inclusively we can do so much more. In 2012, a Dow Jones study found that the overall median proportion of female executives is 7.1% at successful companies and 3.1% at unsuccessful companies, demonstrating the value that having more females can potentially bring to a management team.
