Today in Cis Privilege: Women CEOs Are More Likely To Be Forced Out Of Their Jobs

Few women are brought in as CEOs of the largest American companies, and when they are, they’re more likely to end up forced out in the end, according to a new report from Strategy&.

Just 3 percent of the new CEOs brought in among the country’s largest 2,500 public companies were women this year, a 1.3 percent drop from 2012. And the percentage of women at the helm of the largest companies may be staying relatively flat in recent years because female CEOs are more likely to be fired than men. Over the past decade, 38 percent of women were forced out of the chief executive role, compared to just 27 percent of men, a finding that is statistically significant.
