YEAR OF THE BOSS LADY

SHE Carribean Magazine - - SPOT LIGHT -

A study re­leased in Jan­uary 2015 by the In­ter­na­tional Labour Or­gan­i­sa­tion (ILO) found that Ja­maica has the high­est pro­por­tion of women man­agers in the world; at 59.3%, Ja­maica is way ahead of coun­tries like the USA and UK. In fact, the Caribbean re­gion fea­tured strongly, with Saint Lu­cia com­ing 3rd at 52.3%, and Ba­hamas (9th), Bar­ba­dos (13th), Trinidad and Tobago (14th) and Cay­man (16th) on the list. The study en­ti­tled “Women in Busi­ness and Man­age­ment, Gain­ing Mo­men­tum” found that women are still un­der-rep­re­sented at the top, although the num­ber of women in se­nior and mid­dle man­age­ment po­si­tions has in­creased over the last 20 years. SHE is proud to pro­file two of the re­gion’s top boss ladies as an in­spi­ra­tion to all women who are forg­ing ahead with their ca­reers in ev­ery field.
