More women than ever now holding top corporate jobs in Canada
Each year, the Rosenzweig Report on Women at the Top Levels of Corporate Canada tracks how many women hold the highest executive positions at Canada's 100 biggest publicly-traded companies.
These leaders of industry – CEOs, CFOs and others – are critical when it comes to changing corporate culture and enhancing diversity.
There are now 48 women in these key positions, up from 42 the previous year (a 14.3% increase) and more than double the 23 women with those jobs in the first Rosenzweig Report in 2006.
Women now hold 9.02% of these important jobs, compared to 7.9% a year ago, and only 4.62% in 2006.
The annual Rosenzweig Report tracks the largest publicly-traded companies in Canada based on annual revenue ranging from $47 billion down to $2.4 billion.
Each of these companies is required to file with regulators management circulars with names and compensation of the top five or more executives. ■
