Filene: Women in Leadership - Obstacles and Opportunities
Wednesday, May 14, 2014 7:00 AM

Historically, women in the U.S. have made significant progress, professionally, to close the compensation gap with men. However, women who want to earn more; do more, and take leading roles at organizations are held back due to various personal, professional, and cultural barriers, according to the latest report from the Filene Research Institute.

As the first report from Filene’s Credit Union Women in Leadership International Research Series, it identifies existing research that relates to women, leadership, and financial services. Here are a few highlights from the report: 

  • Credit unions in the United States have a higher percentage of female CEOs than other institutions. 
  • Most women leaders serve at credit unions smaller than $50 million.
  • In the $100M-$500M tier, about one out of five CEOs is a woman.
  • Outside of North America, male CEOs predominate, even in smaller credit unions.
