Allbrightrapporten 2015: Stora bolag bäst på att befordra kvinnor

NewsPosted by SWAN 2015-03-03 14:52


Majoriteten av börsbolagen rasar på jämställdhetsstegen. Antalet kvinnor på vd-poster är färre. Andelen bolag med jämställda ledningsgrupper minskar. Detta trots en växande börs med rekordmånga noterade bolag. Inte förrän år 2063 når börsen jämställdhet om det fortsätter i samma takt.

Fewer Women Run Big Companies Than Men Named John

NewsPosted by SWAN 2015-03-03 14:47
NY Times: "Among chief executives of S.&P. 1500 firms, for each woman, there are four men named John, Robert, William or James. We’re calling this ratio the Glass Ceiling Index, and an index value above one means that Jims, Bobs, Jacks and Bills — combined — outnumber the total number of women, including every women’s name, from Abby to Zara. Thus we score chief executive officers of large firms as having an index score of 4.0."

Conference: Inspiring the Next Generation of Women Leaders in Dispute Resolution

EventsPosted by SWAN 2015-02-20 12:31

London, 23-24 June 2015

In 1988, Carrie Menkel-Meadow wrote that although women constituted half of all law students, it would be the turn of the century before this representation was mirrored among practitioners.

This conference will address the question, twenty-five years later, of why law firms are still losing a large percentage of their female talent to the “pipeline leak” so that 30% representation at partner level is a success story. This is an opportunity to learn from the world’s leading employers and takeaway practical solutions and new perspectives on creating gender diversity in your team.

Linn Bergman (SWAN Board) will share the lessens learned in Sweden since the creation of SWAN and Natalia Petrik (SCC Secretariat) will talk about how the SCC promotes women in arbitration. Find additional confirmed speakers here.

SWAN is a Media Partner to the Conference.

Könssterotyp förklarar få kvinnor i toppen

LeadershipPosted by SWAN 2015-02-20 12:28

Mansnormen styr när man pratar om vad som är en bra chef visar en ny studie från Stockholms universitet. Den manliga chefen beskrivs som beslutsför, professionell eller målinriktad och kvinnor som lyhörda, empatiska och goda kommunikatörer.

Män beskrivs utan jämförelse med hur hur kvinnor är som ledare medan kvinnor som ledare regelmässigt jämförs med den manliga normen. Kvinnor beskrivs i regel som mer eller mindre lyhörda, beslutsmässiga eller empatiska än män men männen beskrivs aldrig som bättre eller sämre än kvinnor.

Studien visar också att diskussionen om den ojämna könsfördelningen på toppnivå tenderer att handla om att det beror på kvinnornas val av utbildning, att skaffa familj etc. och sällan om arbetsgivarnas ansvar och intresse av att uppmuntra och främja kvinnors ledarskap.

Jämför Anne Rambergs artikel i Advokaten som refereras och länkas nedan. Ramberg lägger, precis som många andra, allt ansvar på den enskilda kvinnan.

Hanna Kusterer har skrivit doktorsavhandlingen Women and men in management: Stereotypes, evaluation and discourse som försvarades i december 2014.

TDM Special Issue on Diversity

ArbitrationPosted by SWAN 2015-02-08 15:44

The expansion of international arbitration into new regions as well as steady growth in more established markets has not, however, been reflected in the greater participation of a greater variety of practitioner whether female or non-European/American or from different ethnic and religious backgrounds. Women are not getting the same opportunities as men, regardless of background.

Statistics published by arbitral institutions indicate quite strongly that, more generally, there is a severe imbalance in the vast number of appointments whether by parties or by the institution concerned. The appointment of European and American arbitrators usually account for a large chunk of the pie chart with the thinnest, barely visible slivers representing arbitrators from other regions or ethnicity. Further analysis of the numbers indicates that things are not really improving.

This TDM Special Issue will provide international practitioners and academics with an overview of the overall position of diversity in international arbitration.

Publication is expected in July 2015.

"Det är inte kvinnors fel att affärsjuridiska byråer har så få kvinnor bland delägarna"

NewsPosted by SWAN 2015-01-27 14:54

Läs intervjun i Dagens Juridik med Carina Holmgren och Anette Hansson Ahl där de kommenterar Allbright-rapporten och Advokatsamfundets roll när det gäller att arbeta för att både kvinnor och män kan göra karriär inom advokatbranschen. De ifrågasätter bl.a. generalsekreterare Anne Rambergs åsikt att allt ansvar ligger på de enskilda kvinnorna och att branschen inte har några strukturella problem att arbeta med.
