Starting today we will report on how gender equal the Stockholm Stock Exchange is. The stock market consists of 316 companies on small, mid and large cap. We have digged into the data and will present the latest findings for the boards, top managements, CEOs and chairmen during March.
Hint: we still have a long way to reach gender equality and we are moving in the right direction.
Increase of women CEOs from 6 to 8 %
