Gender Diversity in Jordan


IFC has published a document analysing the impact of gender diversity on the economic performance of companies in Jordan. It points out that despite the large number of women in Jordanian society, they continue to be significantly under-represented in boardrooms and therefore provide little input when important decisions for companies are made.  

The research aims to demonstrate the value of having women on these boards and in senior-management positions, and flags up some of the challenges facing women today if they want to occupy decision-making posts. It also makes some recommendations as to how to overcome these obstacles.
