Enterprise Survey report : Women in Business and Management
Across the world, more businesses are realizing the untapped potential of women within their organizations. Although they represent slightly over half the potential world’s workforce, women remain a underutilized asset for most fi rms, and signifi cant barriers remain to their advancement in the workplace, particularly at higher levels of management.
The Bureau for Employers’ Activities (ACT/EMP) of the International Labour Organization (ILO) has developed a Global Company Survey to gather data on these dynamics so that employers may better understand the situation of women in business and management and work to unlock their full potential. To date, the Company Survey has been conducted in over 70 countries, and has generated an extensive database of gender disaggregated data on business operations and how they impact women in business and management.
