It is 2016 but in some company, advancement for women in senior positions have not gotten past 1986. These companies have a plan to change.
Women represent close to 40 percent of new hires at the companies, mostly at the entry level. And they are much harder to find at the top. Men comprise 73 percent of senior management, on average, at these companies, a list that includes AccorHotels, Barclays, Koc Holding, McKinsey & Company, PwC, Schneider Electric, Tupperware Brands, Twitter, Unilever and Vodafone.
The firms, which collectively employ more than 1 million people in 190 countries, break out the percentages of women overall, in the boardroom and at the new hire, entry and senior levels.
All are publicly sharing this data for the first time, with the exception of Twitter. Their leaders — all men — are publicly committing to do better and are sharing goals for increasing the numbers of women at all levels in their companies.
