AP2 conducts an annual survey to determine the number of women employed in middle-and-executive-management positions and on the boards of publicly quoted companies. Furthermore, the survey records the number of women who have graduated in disciplines that constitute the traditional recruitment base for corporate executives and boards of directors.

AP2’s Female Representation Index for 2020 shows that the proportion of women represented on the boards of companies listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, for the first time since 2013, is down slightly and now amounts to 33.7 (34.0) percent. On the other hand, the proportion of women in executive positions, for the tenth consecutive year, increased and amounted to 24.3 (24.0) percent at the year’s survey. For the first time, more than 10 percent of listed companies’ CEOs are women.
