When labour markets are tighter, fewer women are hired into leadership, despite a slight increase in their applications.

The proportion of women in management positions has increased internationally by an average of only half a percent per year over the last three years. Despite many years of efforts to achieve gender equality in the workplace, women continue to be severely underrepresented in management positions. It can be observed that especially when there is less capacity for new hires, a male candidate is more likely to be hired. The recent decline in the proportion of women in management positions in some countries can therefore be explained by a deterioration in labor market conditions.
