CMI Women Campaign Calls for ‘Missing Middle’ of 1.5 Million Women to Fill New Management Roles By 2024

News by CMI, 29 NOV 2016

  • New CMI analysis reveals the UK economy will need 2 million new managers by 2024 – and 1.5 million will need to be women if we are to achieve gender balance
  • Men currently outnumber women in management roles 2:1; 73% of women form junior roles – but go missing at middle management levels – down to 43%
  • CMI creates Blueprint for Balance to provide an open source of practical tools and support to help businesses achieve gender parity in management

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) today launches CMI Women, a new initiative that aims to achieve gender parity across the UK’s management population by 2024, and to help employers unlock more value in the UK’s workforce to address our productivity gap. 

The UK economy needs two million new management roles for it to achieve predicted growth. The launch of CMI Women aims to address this by helping employers identify the measures they can take to achieve gender balance, such as flexible working policies, line manager skills development, mentoring and balanced recruitment.
