Business schools must eliminate gender inequality

Sobering figures show why an International Women’s Day is still so vital. Including for business schools.

Every International Women’s Day we ask ourselves the same question: is this still relevant? Is gender equality still an issue in an era in which Dominique Leroy was voted Manager of the Year, the German chancellor is a woman and Hillary Clinton has entered the home straight and may possibly be elected first female President of the United States?

But then came the sobering figures, which demonstrate that these examples stand out precisely because they are exceptions to the rule. The World Economic Forum calculated that it will take another 117 years to achieve global gender parity in the workplace at this pace.
