How a business school can empower women in business

Women own or manage more than 30 per cent of all businesses but are found at the top of only 5 per cent or less of the biggest enterprises, according to a report from the United Nations, published last week.

The UN’s report estimated that without new actions to promote women’s equality in management, it could take up to 200 years to achieve gender parity in positions of business leadership.

At RSM, we are not patient enough to wait. We have already started researching gender equality, and offering education and mentoring programmes, events and coaching for individuals and organisations at our recently-launched Erasmus Centre for Women and Organisations. Here, Academic Director of the Centre Professor Dianne Bevelander talks to RSM Discovery to explain how a business school can help women to tackle gender issues at work.
