Eurostat: About a third of managers in Romania are women

About a third (34%) of all persons holding managerial positions in Romania in 2017 were women, the share being slightly lower than the EU average of 36%, according to data released by the European statistical office Eurostat.

The largest share of women among managerial positions was recorded in Latvia (56%), this also being the only EU Member State where women are a majority in this occupation. Other high shares were reported in Bulgaria and Estonia (both 49%), Poland and Slovenia (both 47%), and Hungary (43%).

At the opposite end, women account for less than a third of managers in Luxembourg, Cyprus, Czechia, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, Greece, and Austria.

As for board members in the largest publicly listed companies, the highest shares of women were reported in 2018 in France (44%), Italy and Sweden (both 36%), Finland (35%), and Germany (34%). All these countries have shares higher than the EU average of 27%. Meanwhile, Romania has a much lower share of women occupying positions of board members of publicly listed companies – 11% (the same as Cyprus and Lithuania).

However, Romania is among the EU Member States with the highest shares of women holding senior executive positions in the largest publicly listed companies, namely 25%. The EU average was 17% in 2018 and higher shares were reported only in Lithuania (28%), and Bulgaria and Latvia (both 27%).
