New study shows majority of Fair Trade Enterprises are led by women
Culemborg, The Netherlands, 8 March 2019 – Today, the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) releases new studies that shows the majority of Fair Trade Enterprises are led by women. According to the study, the network of more than 300 social enterprises in over 70 countries (i.e. WFTO members) have women as the majority among CEOs, board members and senior managers. This is in stark contrast to the mainstream business world.
Among the 326 businesses that are verified as Fair Trade Enterprises by the WFTO:
- 52 per cent of CEOs are women (the figure is 9 per cent in mainstream business)
- 51 per cent of Board positions are held by women (the figure is 12 per cent in mainstream business)
- 54 per cent of senior roles are held by women (24 per cent in conventional business)
The two reports contain analysis on women’s leadership and explore the drivers of women’s empowerment more broadly.
