Panamanians have low participation in high positions

Human Interest

The incorporation into the economic activity of women in Panama is far from assimilating to their educational achievements with an imbalance in their labor participation and decision-making positions in companies, since 12 percent have females in senior management positions, when the goal defined by international studies is 33 percent.

This is revealed by the study “Women in business management: gaining momentum in Panama” of 2017, presented today by the National Council of Private Enterprise (CoNEP) in partnership with the International Labor Organization (ILO).

The director of ILO for Central America, Haiti, Panama and the Dominican Republic, the Spanish Carmen Moreno, told Efe that this analysis has been “very timely” because Panama, like other countries, needs to move forward on this issue.

“The important thing is that the CoNEP wanted to move forward, because right now in our region only Panama and Honduras have done these studies at the national level, compared to global studies by the ILO.”
