Women Leaders: 100-Year Retrospective


Women Leaders: 100-Year Retrospective Infographic, IMPACT Group

Women Leaders Retrospective

U.S. women gained the right to vote 100 years ago.
Since then, women leaders have journeyed to achieve gender equality in the workplace and – more specifically – in higher leadership roles. This quest has been filled with both celebratory achievements and disappointing setbacks.

In 2020, women in senior leadership across the globe includes:

  • 38% in Africa
  • 35% in Eastern Europe
  • 33% in Latin America
  • 30% in European Union
  • 29% in North America
  • 27% in Asia Pacific
  • Why are women still underrepresented in the top tiers of organizations? Is it because they lack the degrees and skills to fill those roles?

This 100-year retrospective explores women leaders and their journey since 1920 – including where gender equality still needs high attention.
