KUALA LUMPUR, March 8 : Only 17 per cent of businesses in Malaysia have a woman in the role of chief executive officer or managing director, said global professional services network, Grant Thornton International Ltd.

In its latest “Women in Business” research, it was found that the percentage of women holding senior leadership positions in Malaysia also dropped to 23 per cent from 28 per cent recorded in March 2018.

“Gender parity at the head of the table is still a significant way off,” it said in a statement today.
