Study: Jamaica Has Higher Percentage of Female Managers Than Any Other Nation in the World


A new study by the International Labour Organization (ILO) has found that Jamaica has the highest proportion of women managers, globally.

The study released in Geneva today also found that while women are still under-represented in top management, the number of women in senior and middle management positions has increased over the past 20 years.

The study entitled “Women in Business and Management, Gaining Momentum,” found that the proportion of women managers in Jamaica stood at 59.3 percent, while Yemen has the least with 2.1 percent.

The U.S. is ranked 15th in the list of 108 countries with 42.7 percent women managers, while the United Kingdom is at 41st with 34.2 percent.

The Russian Federation holds the 25th place with 39.1 per cent.

Colombia holds the second place at the global level and ranks first in Latin America, followed by Panama in fifth place.

The report presents the findings of a 2013 ILO survey of over 1,200 companies in Africa, Asia and Pacific, Eastern and Central Europe and Latin American and the Caribbean.

The survey was carried out with the assistance of national employers’ organizations in 39 countries.

    The reasons are obvious, white men love to have brown women work with them but underneath their power to be used before going home to their white girlfriend or wife…

    Your comment is disgusting Sir. It shows that you are a small minded person. The possibility that Jamaican women are tough, smart, dependable, hard-working & ambitious – is what I believe gained them that #1 spot – never crossed your mind, vermin.

    Too friggin true mate. But lets spread the jokes around. island girls with their colonial mentality luuuuuuuuuuuuurve to be around a white man, any white man, the dork one who has to jerk off alone in his cold cave in england, germany, france, boring canada. The caribbean is jungle fever heaven. It was ALWAYS the biggest difference between us of the Diaspora in NYC or London and our cousins in the islands.
    As for the men of JA? come on now, they don't want to be no office bytch when you can hang at the beach all day to poke chubby white wimmen with good credit from cold cavelands like england, germand etc etc.
