Fewer leadership positions for women UPSC NOTE

 The stagnation

  • While representation of women across the workforce has increased over the years, LinkedIn’s Economic Graph data show that progress has stalled since 2022 and declined in 2024

  • Also, the progress that was being made in promoting women to senior and leadership roles has stagnated in recent years

  • Women’s representation in the overall workforce increased from 23.9% in 2016 to 27.3% in 2022

  • It stayed the same in 2023 before decreasing to 26.8% in 2024

  • The stagnation in the share of women in senior positions and the dip in this year can be attributed to the slowdown in fresh hires of women for leadership roles

  • The share increased from 18.8% in 2016 to 25.2% in 2021 and declined after that

  • Despite progress, women still face obstacles in reaching leadership roles due to bias, societal norms, and structural barriers. 

  • However, recent focus on ‘women-led development’ has led to concerted efforts by both policymakers and business leaders to tackle these challenges

  • An industry-wide look at the share of women in senior leadership positions shows that even the gradual rise was limited to certain sectors

  • The entry and career progression of women were lowest in the oil, gas and mining, construction, utilities, wholesale, manufacturing, transportation and real estate sectors 

  • In these sectors, there were just 11%-14% women in leadership roles.

  • But, In administrative and support services, healthcare and hospitals, consumer services, government administration, and education, the share of women was between 22% and 30%
