2010 Census of Women in Leadership shows curb in downward trend but little change for women in leadership roles in Australia

The long awaited bi-annual census results of women in leadership roles in Australia have been released today by EOWA, the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency.  Following a downward trend in almost every category in the 2008 results, the 2010 census results have been eagerly awaited.  The good news is the downward trend appears to have been arrested; the bad news is despite comprising 45% of the Australian labour force, women hold only 8% of key executive management roles, 3% of CEO roles, 8.4% of company director roles and 2.5% of ASX200 Chairs.

A snapshot of the census results shows that the proportion of women holding key leadership roles in Australia is on the up across most leadership categories:

  • ASX200 Chairs – up from 2% in 2008 to 2.5% in 2010
  • ASX200 CEOs – up from 2% in 2008 to 3% in 2010
  • ASX200 executive key management personnel – up from 7% in 2008 to 8% in 2010
  • ASX200 Board directors – up from 8.3% in 2008 to 8.4% in 2010
  • University Vice Chancellors – down from 21.1% in 2008 to 19.7% in 2010
  • Management and professional positions – down from 45.5% in 2008 to 44.6% in 2010

Shout out to the magnificent men at Manly Cycles (in Manly, of course!) who helped me out today. No, I haven't returned to my youth and bought a bicycle (though I did have a lot of fun on that bike like that time I cycled half way to Adelaide and back during the school holidays because - well - just because. And that time I cycled to the next town over to collect a new pet rabbit, who looked a little horrified when she realised she was to be the cargo transported on the parcel rack).
No, after the bicycle being my mode of transport to and from school for most of my primary and high school years, I don't care if I never ride another bicycle in my life.
But... the horse needed some bike tubes for his tie up post. So the men at Manly Cycles sorted that out for me, with a smile, and wouldn't even let me buy them a coffee in thanks. Big thumbs up!
