Although individual examples of best practice among companies in terms of achieving gender balance were generally thought to be lacking in the region, study participants were able to identify more easily specific countries that were setting an example and making progress in terms of women’s advancement.

Participating leaders in the study were also asked to look to the future to gauge anticipated progress toward greater gender balance at leadership level.
