S&P 2023 Report: Women Lose Senior Roles To Men In US Companies – Bloomberg

Women accounted for 11.8% of the approximately 15,000 C-suite roles in the S&P Global Total Market Index in 2023, researchers at the data provider said, down from 12.2% the previous year. That suggests women ceded about 55-60 positions with ‘chief’ in the title to men last year.

Though the absolute decline may seem small, it’s significant considering women’s representation in top roles had been increasing for years, from 6.5% in 2005. Across a broader swath of senior positions, numbers nearly tripled in that time period to 22.3% in 2023.
