Women in EU – Only 1 manager out of 3

Nearly 7.3 million persons hold managerial positions in enterprises with 10 employees or more located in the European Union (EU): 4.7 million men (65% of all managers) and 2.6 million women (35%). In other words, although representing approximately half of all employed persons in the EU, women continue to be under- represented amongst managers.
In addition, those women in managerial positions in the EU earn 23.4% less on average than men, meaning that female managers earn on average 77 cents for every euro a male manager makes per hour.
This pattern at EU level masks significant discrepancies between Member States regarding both positions and pay.
This information, extracted from the four-yearly structure of earnings survey for reference year 2014, is published by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, on the occasion of International Women’s Day. This News Release only shows a small part of the large amount of gender based data available at Eurostat.
