South Africa is making headway in appointing females to chair boards, according to Deloitte’s Women in the Boardroom global survey, which ranks the country fourth-highest in the world. Italy at 22. 2% and Norway at 18. 2% take the two top spots, but South Africa’s 7. 8% percentage female-held board appointments is just behind third-placed Austria, where 9. 1% of board chairs are women. “This is an important achievement, as the global average is only 4% for board chairs – we are also above the 5% average for the Europe, Middle East and Africa grouping. Clearly, there is still a long way to go and more companies need to make strides in this direction, but we are making progress we can be proud of,” says Johan Erasmus, Director, Deloitte. South Africa, at 17. 5%, is at ninth place for the percentage of total board seats occupied by women. The countries above South Africa in the survey - was based on a dataset covering nearly 6,000 companies in 40 different countries - are all from Europe, with Norway leading with 36. 7%. “It really tells a story of how South Africa is encouraging... At Deloitte, we believe gender diversity is a business imperative - the benefits just cannot be ignored. Different perspectives can result in less risky and enhanced decision-making, and a better representation of stakeholders’ interests. There is no doubt that a gender diverse team produces a better result. We have definitely realised this and celebrate it. This has been critical to our success as a diverse professional services firm, and is certainly something we consciously work at in our firm,” says Sudasha Naidoo, Chairman, Deloitte Women in... Deloitte South Africa’s recent partner appointments reflected a record 50% female partner appointments. A milestone in the South African firm which was supported by Deloitte’s programme of mentorships, corporate governance for female directors as well as Deloitte Women in Leadership pioneering several initiatives to attract, develop and retain key... However, the road ahead will be bumpy as the global perspective finds not enough top positions are occupied by women. “As the averages in the survey show, we are still a long way from closing the traditional gender gaps that have existed,” says Erasmus. According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), compelling findings regarding the benefits of gender equality are emerging. Source: www.biztechafrica.com
