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.

Hernberg notes that the diversity at the Helsinki Stock Exchange has shown significant growth, 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, indicating that there is still room for enhancement in terms of gender diversity in leadership positions.

The inspiration for Hernberg’s calculation came from a similar calculation made by the Union of Women’s Affairs in 2015, which highlighted the lack of female representation in CEOs of listed companies. Since then, there has been a gradual increase in the number of female CEOs, although last year saw a decrease in their presence. According to the Central Chamber of Commerce, the share of women among the CEOs of listed companies was nine percent, with 12 companies being led by female CEOs.

Over the years, the number of female CEOs in listed companies has fluctuated, reaching a peak of around ten before stabilizing at the current level. These statistics underscore the importance of making informed decisions when selecting leaders in the corporate world, ensuring a more inclusive and diverse representation in top positions.
