Just 1 woman among 25 CEOs appointed in past year. We need a reset and in 2020 we’ve been given one

Just one of the 25 CEOs appointed to lead ASX 200 organisations in the past year has been female, and it’s not something we can excuse as a 2020 anomaly.

It’s hard to believe that the already minuscule number of women leading these organisations could have dwindled further, but it has. Dropping from 12 to 10. So just 5 percent of ASX200 companies are now led by a woman.

Other key stats from the CEW report:

  • Just 5 per cent of leadership line roles in healthcare are held by women, despite the workforce being female dominated
  • Women in senior IT roles have dropped to 9%, from 21% four years ago
