(The Romania Insider)
Romania is above the EU average for the share of women in management positions, but among the last in the European Union for the share of women in Parliament and Government, Romania-Insider.com has found from Eurostat data and other public sources.
About four in ten (40%) of the management positions in Romanian companies are occupied by women, according to Eurostat data for 2019. The share of women managers in Romania was above the EU average of 37%, but not among EU’s highest.
Thus, Romania is 12th and far behind leader Latvia, where almost 55% of management positions are held by women. Poland and Bulgaria also have almost as many women as men in management positions (over 48%). On the other end, Cyprus has only 22% of management positions held by women, while Croatia and Italy have under 28%.
