WEF Issues Corporate Gender Gap Report

RedTracker| The World Economic Forum has issued the Corporate Gender Gap Report 2010, its first survey of 600 leading companies across 16 industries in 20 countries.

The average for women holding the CEO-level position was a little less than 5% among the 600 companies surveyed. Finland (13%), Norway (12%), Turkey (12%), Italy (11%) and Brazil (11%) have the highest percentage of women CEOs in this sample.

Although wage gaps between women and men are a universally recognized problem, 72% of the companies surveyed do not attempt to track salary gaps at all. You can download the report here. We’re reading it too.
