The CEW Census reveals that progress in the number of women reaching senior leadership positions in ASX200 companies has flatlined in the past year.

Recent research from Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre and the Australian Government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA)[i] demonstrates the tangible, positive improvements in company productivity and profitability that correspond with greater female representation in ELT positions. Despite this, the CEW Census results show women hold just 12% of ELT roles that have profit and loss responsibility.

Of the 25 CEO appointments in 2020, one was a woman. How can Australian organisations change this and strengthen pathways into leadership roles? The CEW Census provides it’s data and key findings, but will also provide governments and businesses with key actions for change.

The 2020 CEW Census is supported by CEW Partners Bain & Company and Spencer Stuart.
