Nach wie vor kaum Frauen in den Top-Gremien großer Unternehmen

Frauen sind in den Spitzengremien der großen Unternehmen nach wie vor massiv unterrepräsentiert. Immer noch sind die Vorstände nahezu eine reine Männerdomäne: Im Untersuchungszeitraum 2008/2009 waren in den 200 größten Unternehmen außerhalb des Finanzsektors (Top 200) nur 2,5 Prozent dieser Spitzenposten von Frauen besetzt. Auch in den Vorständen der 100 größten Banken und 58 größten
