Studies show that there is a correlation between financial performance and female leadership. A landmark and much-quoted report from Credit Suisse Research Institute found that companies with women directors outperformed those without them in average growth, price/book -value multiple and return on equity.

Why you want to learn it
There is clear clear evidence that companies with a higher proportion of women in decision-making roles continue to generate higher returns on equity, while running more conservative balance sheets. In fact, where women accounted for the majority in the top management, the businesses showed superior sales growth, high cash flow returns on investments and lower leverage. Yet this year the proportion of senior business roles held by women in the U.K. has fallen from 21% in 2016 to 19%, and while women outnumber men at junior levels, not enough make it through middle management to the top. The Chartered Management Institute predicts that to achieve an even split of management positions between men and women by 2024, the U.K. will need an additional 1.5 million female managers. To achieve this target organisations have a real responsibility to promote and encourage female leadership potential and to invest in a talent pipeline that continually supports and maximises women to excel at work and be confident to take every opportunity.
