The number of women in senior management is on the rise in the UK and Europe at last – with higher percentages being employed as chief financial officers (CFOs), in other FD roles and as human resources (HR) directors.
It shows that Europe has been catching up with its peers in emerging markets, which have seen a fall this year, with the proportion of women in senior management in Europe rising steadily from 17% in 2004 to 20% in 2009 to 24% in 2012. Percentage of businesses employing women in each role globallyAs you can see from our chart, in terms of finance 13% of businesses globally have female CFOs, and a further 13% of businesses employ women in other senior finance roles such as corporate controller. Rise of the female role modelThe figures may still be low on the whole – hence the debate on quotas and boardroom diversity – but the past 12 months have seen women take the lead in some of the toughest economic and political environments. Christine Lagarde became the first female to head the International Monetary Fund, Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, has emerged as the key figure in solving the eurozone sovereign debt crisis and Maria das Gracas Foster has taken over at Petrobras, becoming the first woman to run one of the world’s top five oil companies. Women also head governments in countries such as Argentina, Australia, Brazil and Thailand.
Could women have averted the eurozone crisis?Meanwhile, the participation of women in senior management is a hot topic in Europe. Christine Lagarde, Head of the IMF and former Finance Minister of France, said in the New York Times: “If Lehman Brothers had been ‘Lehman Sisters’, today’s economic crisis clearly would look quite different”.
This has also been much press stating the positive effect of women in business, for example, a 2009 study by Professor Nick Wilson at the University of Leeds found that having at least one female board member reduced that business’s chances of folding by 20%, and having more than one reduced the odds even further (Source: The Times).

This 3-year grant, “Growing Successful Transitions with Beginning Women Farmer Programs in the Northeast and Texas, #2012-49400-19673,” will result in 360 beginning women farmers trained in whole farm planning and drafting a whole farm plan. By receiving this grant, HMI can continue to serve a valuable role in training more farmers and ranchers in ways that not only create healthy land – but also improve the profitability and quality of life of the people who live on that land. HMI’s work will also helps address the shortage of farmers and ranchers in the United States.
HMI will take a two-pronged approach to build greater resilience and success in the USDA’s efforts to provide whole farm planning training to beginning women farmers.
1) HMI will expand the systems, collaborations, and curriculum developed from training 270 beginning women farmers in the Northeast.  We’ll improve the efforts of the whole farm planning collaborators to move toward sustained self-sufficiency in providing whole farm planning programming to beginning women farmers in Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New York and we’ll train an additional 270 beginning women farmers. 2) HMI will address the need for whole farm planning training of 90 beginning women farmers in Texas through a pilot project in the Austin area.
The total grant amount awarded from USDA NIFA BFRDP is for $671,377 of which HMI is matching 25% through support from foundations and donors. If you are a beginning (less than ten years experience) women farmer or rancher in Texas or the Northeast and you are interested in joining the program, please contact the individuals below. If you’d like to learn more about our Beginning Farmers & Ranchers program and the women whose lives we’ve changed, please check out the following…. Many of the women whose lives we’ve changed have are making a difference and people are taking notice. This project was supported by the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, USDA, Grant # 2012-49400-19673. Fresh Local Food – in a Vending MachineMay 27, 2016 One of the challenges that farmers and ranchers continually face is making their food available to community residents.

In the UK, only 4% of surveyed business employed a female CFO but a further 16% employed in other finance director roles. As the sovereign debt crisis rumbles on, commentators have asked whether more women in the boardrooms of major financial institutions would have averted or at least lessened its impact. The data in this report is drawn from 6,000 interviews with business leaders conducted between November 2011 and February 2012. The grant will continue to build further capacity in the Northeast and pilot a project in Austin, Texas where there is demand among beginning women farmers. We will also build capacity for more whole farm planning programming in other regions of Texas in the future by training four whole farm planning trainers in addition to the 90 participants. While there is a small fee to join the program, scholarships are available for those in need of financial assistance.
This successful two-day conference was attended by farmers interested in improving quality of life, profitability, and land health.
