Europe's Retail & CPG Firms Still Lacking When It Comes To Female Representation At Top Level, Study Finds

A new report by ESM, analysing the performance of some of Europe's leading retail and consumer goods firms, has found that female executives are still very much in the minority at the top level.

The Road Ahead report assessed the performance and future prospects for a number of leading businesses in the grocery retail and CPG sector. The companies featured in the report boast a combined workforce of more than 3.3 million, and a combined full-year revenue of €815.7 billion.

The study found that of that 77.9% of the positions on the leadership teams/executive committees/boards of directors (where applicable)* of the 40 firms included in the study were held by men (317), while 22.1% were held by women (90).
