Women In Consulting – what’s happening ? by Catriona Cookson

The 2019 Times Top 50 Employers For Women listing was published recently. Based on a wide range of criteria, all the featured employers make gender equality part of their business strategy at all levels.

It’s encouraging to see 10 consulting firms on the list – all the usual suspects are there and good to see Baringa and Mercer making the list too. You can take a look at the full list here, in an ideal world we really wouldn’t need such a list but until then …..

Meanwhile, Deloitte have appointed their first female UK Managing Partner in the UK, as Anne-Marie Malley is promoted to lead the Consulting Division in the UK…..more cheering news.

However, there’s still a long way to go….Consultancy.uk reports that all of the largest consultancies operating in the UK have reported significant gender pay gaps , and the proportion of women in UK consulting has fallen, despite a recruitment boom, meaning the best paid executive jobs are far more likely to go to men. While consulting firms seem to be able to attract female entrants….keeping them seems to be a bigger challenge!
