The Credit Suisse Research Institute released its bi-annual CS Gender 3000 report reaffirming its prior findings that companies with a higher participation of women in decision-making roles continue to generate higher market returns and superior profits. In addition, the report debunks the “Queen Bee” syndrome, challenges the notion of the “Class Cliff” and gains new insights into gender diversity in Venture Capital and Microfinance.
The report, first launched in 2014, analyzes the Credit Suisse Gender 3000 (CSG 3000), which encompasses 27,000 senior managers at over 3,000 companies Credit Suisse analysts cover globally. With the data provided by the CSG 3000, the report examines whether the evidence continues to link gender diversity to better performance and looks specifically at firms with more than 50% female representation in senior management, Microfinance institutions and Venture Capital firms.
