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 Helsinki, the trend has shifted, and 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.

Since then, there has been a gradual increase in the number of female CEOs in listed companies. Despite this growth in diversity at the Helsinki Stock Exchange, 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. The inspiration for Hernberg’s calculation came from a similar calculation made by the Union of Women’s Affairs in 2015 that highlighted the lack of female representation in CEOs of listed companies.

According to the Central Chamber of Commerce, the share of women among the CEOs of listed companies was nine percent last year, with 12 companies being led by female CEOs. Over time statistics have fluctuated with a peak around ten before stabilizing at their current level. These figures underscore the importance of making informed decisions when selecting leaders in the corporate world to ensure a more inclusive and diverse representation at top positions.

The shift towards gender diversity is not just limited to Finland but is becoming increasingly important across many industries worldwide. It is crucial to create an environment that fosters inclusion and encourages diversity at all levels within an organization’s leadership structure.

The challenge now lies in ensuring that this trend continues beyond just Helsinki and into other regions across Europe and beyond. Organizations need to take actionable steps towards creating a diverse workforce that reflects their business goals and values.

In conclusion, while progress has been made towards greater gender diversity at Helsinki Stock Exchange’s leadership level it is important not to rest on our laurels but continue pushing for change until we achieve true equality and inclusivity across all industries globally.
