Carleton Study Reveals Uneven Progress of Female Leaders in Canada

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 -- Carleton University's Centre for Women in Politics and Public Leadership released a comprehensive benchmarking study today that outlines the uneven progress of female leaders in Canada and the challenges to achieving parity in the private, public and non-profit sectors.

The report, compiled in collaboration with Deloitte and written by Carleton professors Pauline Rankin and Jennifer Stewart, shows that women held only 29 per cent of senior management positions in Canada in 2011, although they constituted 47 per cent of the workforce, just a six per cent increase since 1987. And there is significant variation across industries, with energy, retail and wholesale, and manufacturing well below average levels. If the rate of change remained constant, just 37 per cent of senior management positions will be held by women in 2035.

The report builds on research that has noted women's under-representation in top leadership positions in single sectors by offering a broad snapshot that reveals persistent patterns and areas where strategies to address the gender gap have stalled.

"The fact is that few organizations actually implement a coherent action plan to address the lack of women leaders," said Clare Beckton, executive director of the Carleton centre. "And there is a real chance of losing ground in some areas if this issue is not tackled in a comprehensive manner."

"Women make significant contributions in the workplace, possessing valuable skills required for leadership positions," said Jane Allen, partner and chief diversity officer, Deloitte. "While it is encouraging that women continue to experience modest gains in terms of moving up the corporate ladder, we can no longer afford this slow growth. Organizations need to embrace women's leadership in order to succeed in the years ahead."

The report reveals that women are not making consistent, steady gains toward full leadership equality, but instead experience fluctuations and plateaus over time. They do better in the public and non-profit sectors than they do in private industry.

In the private sector, women held only 26 per cent of senior management positions in 2011. They held 43 per cent of senior management positions in public administration, up from 35 per cent in 1987. A third of judges are female. Women hold 40 per cent of CEO positions in the non-profit and charitable sector.

Among other findings:


--  Women are under-represented in senior posts even in sectors where they
    constitute a significant percentage of middle managers and have the best
    educational credentials. 
--  Definitions of good leadership have changed but that hasn't resulted in
    significant changes to the expectations women leaders face. 
--  Access of minority women to leadership positions requires special
    attention. 
--  There are major data gaps on women leaders in some areas.
--  There are emerging generational gaps in ideas about work and leadership
    that need to be addressed.

Recommendations include supporting the shared responsibility of women and men for all aspects of family-related care duties as sector-wide initiatives are implemented to address gaps of women in the senior ranks.

Carleton's centre released a report last month that looked specifically at women in the mining industry. It found that despite the looming labour shortage and an increasing number of female university graduates in engineering and technology-related programs, women remain under-represented in all of the industry's employment opportunities, from entrance positions to leadership posts.
