Women are finding it as hard as ever to get to the top of companies, according to a new survey.
The report, Breaking the Barriers: Women in Senior Management, suggests that there are still many different reasons why there are few women in senior positions.
The main reason cited by the 1,300 women surveyed in the Opportunity Now report is the lack of wide-ranging skills and experience, a reason recognised by the 1300 woman surveyed.
The report concludes that there will continue to be a lack of women in top jobs unless they are regularly given more responsibility.
