Women in Business 2024: Pathways to Parity

2024 marks the 20th year of Grant Thornton’s work to monitor and measure the proportion of women occupying senior management roles in mid-market companies around the world. The Women in Business project has explored what helps, and what hinders, women in the workplace through a period that’s offered plenty of challenge. Global mid-market companies have navigated the financial crisis of 2007 08, worked through the pandemic and currently contend with the impact of geopolitical tension and conflict. The global economy continues to shift and mid-market organisations are under more pressure than ever to adapt. Faced with such changes, it’s crucial that we maintain focus: the challenge of getting women into senior management is as urgent as it has ever been. Many mid-market businesses have responded to this imperative, and there have been improvements. We must ensure this momentum continues and accelerates.
