Women managers in Italy have increased by 8.1% in the last year and have doubled since 2008. This is the significant data that emerges from the latest “Women Report” on private managers, developed by Manageritalia on the latest official data made available from the INPS. A report that shows clear signs of change and improvement.

Women now make up 21.4% of the total compared to 12.2% in 2008. This increase can be attributed to various factors, including generational turnover. Women under 35 are particularly represented, with 39% in managerial roles and 40% among managers, who constitute the antechamber of management.

Sectoral differences

As regards the different sectors, the presence of women in managerial roles has grown in the Tertiary sector by 8.5%, less in Industry (+7.1%). Excellent results also for the health and social assistance sectors with a total +18.3% with women reaching +20.2%. In the information services and corporate communications sector, women recorded a +10.5% increase compared to the total number of new managers which stopped at +6.5%.

However, there are also sectors in which the presence of women managers has decreased, such as in education and teaching, where there was an overall decrease of -34.6%, with even a -48% for women. This could indicate a change in the desires and aspirations of women, who are moving towards other work sectors.

Geographical differences

There are also disparities between the geographical areas of the Italian territory: the region with the highest percentage of women in managerial positions is Sicily (28%), followed in order by Lazio (27.6%), Puglia (24%), Molise (23.1%) and Lombardy (23.3%). In the last three places Trentino-Alto Adige (10.9%), Umbria (13%) and Friuli-Venezia Giulia (13.6%).
