Filipino women in leadership: Government and industry
David, Clarissa C.; Albert, Jose Ramon G.; Vizmanos, Jana Flor V. | November 2017
Guided by the principle of “leaving no one behind”, the world targets to achieve gender equality as part of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Through the said SDG, United Nations member-states, like the Philippines, have committed to ensure that the rights and privileges afforded to all citizens are the same regardless of sex. This Policy Note presents current statistics on female representation in key leadership positions in the Philippine government and industry. It reveals a dearth of female representation in senior or lead positions and discusses some recommendations to address this systemic underrepresentation of Filipino women.
