Research finding about senior IR positions included in awards nomination
Last year we uncovered a glass ceiling in the IR world: our global IRO survey revealed that while the number of men and women who work in IR is roughly equal, two thirds of heads of IR positions go to men.
Such stats are depressingly familiar throughout the business world. Within IR, however, the news came as a surprise: IR has always been an industry with many women in senior positions. Despite this, the study shows more needs to be done to improve career opportunities for women in investor relations.
We included this research in an entry for the Willis Towers Watson Media Awards and are happy to say we have been short-listed for the prize of best institutional investment publication.
The awards are decided by a public vote, so we wanted to ask whether you would support our nomination. As readers of IR Magazine, whether through the print magazine, website or newsletter, we hope you can send a vote of support our way. Every vote will also help to raise the profile of our writing on women in IR.
