Can we achieve gender equality in management roles in the next decade?
The UK economy is going to need two million new managers by 2024. But if we are to see gender balance at work then, 1.5 million of those new managers will need to be women. The figures come from the Chartered Management Institute, which is launching a new initiative to redress that imbalance in the workplace. Men outnumber women in management roles three to one, and the Institute says it’s time to campaign for what it calls "gender parity". Patrick Woodman, Head of External Affairs at the Chartered Management Institute, joined Share Radio Breakfast to give more details on the issue.
