More Women Are Now CEOs of Listed Companies than Men

In recent years, the trend at the Helsinki Stock Exchange has shifted, with more women than Juha serving as CEOs of companies listed on the stock exchange. According to a recent calculation by responsibility consultant Kaisa Hernberg, there are ten women as managing directors of listed companies, while Juha presence has decreased to only five. Additionally, there are also five managing directors named Mikko, four named Mikko, and three each of Arto, Eso, Miko, Petr, Peko, and Timo.

Hernberg notes that the diversity at the Helsinki Stock Exchange has shown significant growth, with the current share of women as CEOs of listed companies slightly exceeding seven percent. This improvement is evident despite women surpassing Juha in numbers, indicating that there is still room for enhancement in terms of gender diversity in leadership positions.

The inspiration for Hernberg’s calculation came from a similar calculation made by the Union of Women’s Affairs in 2015, which highlighted the lack of female representation in CEOs of listed companies. Since then, there has been a gradual increase in the number of female CEOs
