65 — women in management positions
According to the Jahrbuch der Hilfswerke 2019, 65 percent of small organisations (with operating expenditure of less than 1 million Swiss francs) have a woman at their helm. Is this a welcome development? Or is it a typical image of gender distribution at managerial level? The Stiftungsreport 2019 and the Jahrbuch der Hilfswerke 2019, published in early December, both pay particular attention to gender distribution across leadership positions within charities and NGOs. It’s an excellent opportunity for a moment of reflection.
