Half of women are in middle management and yet, less than 10 per cent are in C-suite. So what’s stopping women from stepping up and taking on more roles in senior management?
Articles and research papers by INSEAD and other institutions reveal the challenges women face at their workplace, and what both organisations and women themselves can do to make leadership opportunities available to all genders.
INSEAD staff and alumni also share their views and experiences on the issue.
