Building a comprehensive picture of gender composition and talent mobility in investment teams across Australia
Future IM/Pact, in collaboration with Mercer, is leading the Gender Data Report to build a comprehensive view of gender composition and talent mobility within Australian investment teams. This report builds upon 2016 Mercer research, which exposed structural and cultural barriers to women’s progress within investment management, finding 50% of women were more likely to leave at the senior analyst level and men were 30% more likely to be promoted.
This research is now 7 years old, and although subsequent workplace data has been collected, we don’t have a comprehensive overview of gender diversity across the industry or a way to track the crucial levers of appointments, promotions and exits.
We are keen for investment firms of all sizes and sectors to participate to ensure a robust, representative dataset.
With plans to survey the industry every 3 years, this data will reveal the type of organisations and roles where women and men are more likely to work, be promoted or leave. When combined with qualitative insights, we’ll be able to identify environments where women are thriving and apply these insights to support organisations and teams struggling to attract and retain great female talent.
