Episode 98 - Why Are We Still Not Seeing More Women in Senior Roles? with Carly Moulang and Alessandro Ghio
Why are we not seeing more positive outcomes for women in the workforce?
What can employers do to help women overcome the barriers to entry for senior positions? These are some of the questions that researchers Carly Moulang and Alessandro Ghio asked employers in Australia. Their findings are now available in a report titled "Working women and wellbeing."
In this episode, I interview Carly and Alessandro to understand more about what women and their employers can do to overcome gender issues in the workplace. As always, I wanted to know more about Carly's career, Alessandro's career, how they started their research together, and then deep-dive into their research findings.
Do we still need research on this topic?
Carly Moulang: "When Alessandro and I started talking about this, we're like, what's going on here? Why are we not seeing a better representation of women at these more senior levels of accounting firms? [In Australia], 43% of the top 100 accounting firms have no female partners. And so that got us interested in this topic, particularly because we know that organizations are investing more money in having more formal supports in place to support women in the workplace. Despite having this growth, proper support, and things like flexible working arrangements, carers leave, maternity leave, why are we not seeing the outcomes for women? So really, it was like curiosity that drove this project and drove our interest in this area."
Listen to this episode to learn about their recommendations to employers to better support women and minorities. You can use their findings and recommendations to identify red flags in your current employment or during the recruitment and selection process. This may help you identify good and bad employers for women so you can make better decisions for your career moving forward.
I hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did.
