Why do so few women make it to the top of the business world? And what can we do about it?
These are the key questions considered by our 2015 women in business report which looks at the barriers and enablers along the path to business leadership. Drawing on a survey of 5,404 business leaders and in-depth interviews with 20 policymakers, academics and senior decision-makers from inside and outside Grant Thornton, we draw out 12 recommendations for society, government, businesses and women themselves on how to facilitate female advancement.
