The percentage of women in C-suite positions among the top 1,000 U.S. companies by revenue has risen slightly in the last year but is still dramatically lower than that of men, a new study found.
The study, conducted in early 2019 by organizational consulting firm Korn Ferry, examined the percentage of women in top jobs by title and by industry.
The analysis found that across the most prominent C-suite titles, an average of 25 percent of the top leaders are women, up slightly from 23 percent a year ago.
