A new report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission shows almost no progress has been made over the last decade in getting more women in Wales into positions of power.
– Ann Beynon, Commissioner for Wales, Equality and Human Rights Commission
When we look back over a decade of gathering these statistics, our findings show that in several sectors there are fewer women at the top than in 2004. This represents a lost decade in attempts to get more women into senior positions in Wales.
These figures highlight a wider failure to ensure our corridors of power reflect the diversity of Wales and include people from under-represented groups, such as ethnic minority and disabled people.
Good intentions are not enough. This year's report is a wake-up call. it is time to adopt strong measures to speed up the pace of change.
