The more women holding leadership positions
within organizations, the better results will we be able to achieve, Scotiabank Peru CEO Miguel Uccelli affirmed on Thursday.
In the case of Scotiabank, he said, participation of women in management positions increased from 15% to 30% over the last four years, and the results achieved were important.
"The correlation is extraordinary. The more women in leadership positions, the better results," he underlined.
Uccelli remarked that "unconscious biases" should be eliminated when hiring or promoting people at companies.
"We have to make sure decisions are meritocratic," he stated.
"The most concrete action for those who have not started yet is to ask the Human Resources department to make a presentation on the company's current situation (…)," he suggested.
