The Rise of Women in Society: Enablers and Inhibitors

A new global study, commissioned by BNY Mellon and conducted by Professor Nadkarni of the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, investigates the drivers of female representation and longevity in board positions.

The primary motivation of this study was to present comprehensive and nuanced explanations of global variations in the rise of women to the boardroom through rigorous longitudinal analysis of a representative sample of the largest firms across six continents.

The study was launched at BNY Mellon’s Womenomics event in London on 8th April 2015.
