ON Partners celebrates Women’s History Month with 2023 Executive Women Impact Report

This month, ON Partners, a pure-play retained executive search firm building diverse C-level and board leadership teams, published its 2023 Executive Women Impact Report. The report revealed a 56% growth of female executives year-over-year in senior finance, tech, product, and supply chain appointed roles in addition to growth in other industry sectors. An analysis of executive searches completed from 2020-2022 by ON Partners also resulted in a 7.1% increase in average compensation for executive women.

The 2023 Executive Women Impact Report illustrates positive progress for women leaders and comes just as Gen X women (those born from 1965 to 1980) are exiting their C-suite roles. These departures have the potential to create new challenges that can impact the journey of the next generation of career women into future executive leadership roles. In a country where 46.6% of the workforce is female, this also creates the opportunity for executive search firms like ON Partners to find and recruit female talent to prominent roles within numerous industries.

According to a Bloomberg report, the number of women leading companies in the S&P 500 climbed 32% in the past year, but only 29.2% of chief executives were women in 2022. A Labor Department report showed that this number has barely budged since 2020 when it was 29.3%. In addition, women make up 40.5% of all management occupations, which also is down from 2021’s 40.9%.
