A new study has revealed that New Zealand is among the most progressive countries when it comes to gender diversityy in business.
- NZ has the second highest proportion of females represented in the Google Image results for the search term “CEO” in a study of 15 countries
- 32% of the images shown by Google when users search for “CEO” in NZ are of women
- NZ came second only to Canada, where the proportion of females shown by Google was 39%
The study looked at the results shown by Google across 15 countries and analysed not only at the percentage of females shown in the Image results, but also the discrepancy between Google and reality.
In NZ, 40% of those in senior management positions are female, according to data from global business analysis platform Creditsafe, who conducted the research.
