Ambitious, creative, innovative, highly skilled, courageous and powerful women took center stage at Business Arena’s 2015 Most Admired Business Women Awards Gala.

The seventh edition of this special gala brought together some 200 guests at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, celebrating women’s achievements in the workplace and their vital contribution to the success of business and banking activities throughout Romania.

However, not all is well, despite recent progress. Gender inequalities still exist throughout Europe, according to a recent Eurobarometer. Women are still paid on average around 16 per cent less than men per hour of work, they continue to be underrepresented in leadership positions, both in politics and in corporate boardrooms, holding only 27 per cent of seats in national parliaments and governments, 18 per cent of board seats and three per cent of CEO positions.

The report also reveals that a majority of Europeans think that gender inequalities are widespread in their country. “Around three in five Europeans (62 per cent) think that inequalities between men and women are widespread in their country, with around one in ten (11 per cent) thinking they are ‘very widespread’. Around a third of Europeans (34 per cent) think gender inequalities in their country are rare, but only a very small minority (six per cent) believe they are ‘very rare’,” the Eurobarometer indicates.

However, the same report pointed out that 68 per cent of Europeans believe that gender inequalities in their country are less widespread now than a decade ago, with 52 per cent saying they are ‘slightly less widespread’. “Around a quarter of Europeans (23 per cent) think gender inequalities in their country are now more widespread than they were ten years ago, but only a small minority (six per cent) that they are ‘far more widespread’,” the report specifies.

“In all but two Member States10, the majority of respondents think that gender inequalities in their country are now less widespread than they were ten years ago. The countries where respondents are most likely to think this are Sweden (85 per cent), Finland (83 per cent), the Netherlands (82 per cent), Spain (80 per cent), Greece (78 per cent) and Belgium (77 per cent). The countries where respondents perceive the greatest positive change and think that gender inequalities are ‘far less widespread’ are Greece and Cyprus (both 32 per cent), Malta (30 per cent), Ireland (25 per cent), and Croatia and Romania (both 23 per cent).”


While there is a lot more work to be done in the area of gender equality everywhere,
Business Arena is proud to recognize the achievements of women in all business fields in Romania.
On this note, we would like to take the opportunity and congratulate this year’s winners once again.
