Women in the Telecommunications Industry
With the advent of liberalisation, the telecom-sector has seen great upheavels and ever changing structures. Stability and continuity are hard to come by these days. One of the exceptions: constant low levels of women's representation in top-leadership positions. Here we provide you with data about women in top-leadership positions in the biggest telecommunications companies in the year 2000.
Are women entering politics for different reasons and through different access routes than men? What is special about their career and leadership style? Women politicians in all the Member States of the European Union have answered those questions in the interviews led by the transnational team of the European Database.
