Women on Board - some figures

The fact is that so far as leadership is concerned women in nearly every realm are nearly nowhere — hardly any better off than they were a generation ago. The following figures, from the American experience, speak for themselves.

  • 3% of Fortune 500 companies are headed by women (2009).
  • 6 % of the 100 top tech companies are headed by women (2010).
  • 15 % of members of Fortune 500 boards are women (2009).
  • 16.8% of members of the U. S. Congress are women (2010).
  • 14.5% of 249 mayors of U. S. cities with populations over 100,000 are women (2010).
  • 21% of nonprofits with budgets greater than $25 million are headed by women (2010).
  • 5% of generals in the U.S. Army are women (2008).
  • 8% of admirals in the U. S. Navy are women (2009).
  • 7% of tenured engineering faculty in four-year institutions are women (2010).
  • 19 % of senior faculty at the Harvard Business School are women (2009-10).
  • All ten Princeton University eating-club presidents are men (2010).

This does not, of course, mean that there is no improvement whatsoever. Rather it is to point out how abysmally low the numbers remain, a decade into the 21st century. (In some cases, the figures are worse than before. In 2009 the percentage of women holding statewide elective office was 22.6. Ten years earlier it was 27.6.)
