Although there hasn’t been any statistics on how many women work as consultants for Deloitte they recently appointed a female CEO.
One of the biggest consulting and accounting firms in the world, Deloitte, announced Monday that its next CEO would be Cathy Engelbert, the first woman to run the company, and the first female CEO at any of the “big four” global consultancies.
Engelbert, 50, is currently the chairman and CEO of Deloitte’s accounting, auditing, and risk advisory subsidiary, and has been with the company for nearly three decades. She’ll start the new post in March.
Women are still a very small fraction of CEOs in big companies, accounting for just 4.6% of CEOs at companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index (which Deloitte is not part of). Data from Catalyst, a nonprofit focused on advancing women in business, shows how the ranks of women thin out as they ascend the rungs of the corporate ladder.
