Women Still Absent From Top Ranks at Italy Firms, Regulator Says

Listed Italian companies still have too few women as their leaders if compared with growing female representation on corporate boards, according to data from a report released Monday by market regulator Consob.

The number of women in chief executive officer or chairman posts remains limited, showing little change compared with recent years, the authority said in a new report on corporate governance at listed Italian firms, even as the number of women holding board seats has reached a record high.
