More Women Are Now CEOs of Listed Companies than Men

In 2015, there were more CEOs of listed companies named Juha than women. However, in recent years, this trend has shifted in Helsinki, where now there are more women than Juha serving as CEOs of companies listed on the stock exchange. According to a recent calculation by responsibility consultant Kaisa Hernberg, there are ten women as managing directors of listed companies, while Juha presence has decreased to only five. Additionally, there are also five managing directors named Mikko, four named Mikko, and three each of Arto, Eso, Miko, Petr, Peko, and Timo.

Hernberg notes that the diversity at the Helsinki Stock Exchange has shown significant growth, with the current share of women as CEOs of listed companies slightly exceeding seven percent. This improvement is evident despite women surpassing Juha in numbers. However, she believes that there is still room for enhancement in terms of gender diversity in leadership positions.

The inspiration for Hernberg’s calculation came from a similar calculation made by the Union of Women’s Affairs in 2015. Since then, there has been a gradual increase in the number of female CEOs despite last year seeing a decrease in their presence. According to the Central Chamber of Commerce, the share of women among the CEOs of listed companies was nine percent last year with only 12 companies being led by female CEOs.

Over time, the number of female CEOs in listed companies has fluctuated but reached around ten before stabilizing at their current level. These statistics underscore the importance of making informed decisions when selecting leaders in the corporate world and ensuring a more inclusive and diverse representation in top positions.

In conclusion, while progress has been made towards greater gender diversity at the Helsinki Stock Exchange with more women serving as CEOs than Juha for some time now; however it is still crucial to continue pushing for change to ensure an even more diverse representation in leadership positions within corporations.
