More Swedish women succeeding in breaking the glass ceiling in top management positionsMonday, 18 June 2012
For long now, Norway had been the real egalitarian society where more women have been organically climbing the management ladder than anywhere else in the western world. In Sweden though the dream of a diverse management culture where women will give a hot at the top position had been in the past year more talks than action.
This is gradually changing as the proportions of women in the top of Swedish listed companies’ boards have this year fallen slightly, according to the AP Fund's Women's Index.
This year, women reached a share of 22.7 percent, compared with 22.9 percent last year. Meanwhile, the proportion of women in top management increased to 16.3 percent, the highest figure since the fund began measuring in 2003.
If the current pace continues, it will take 27 years before the boards will be made up to half of women and as many as 52 years before the company management will consists of 50 percent women.
