New white paper examines the presence of women in executive roles across a broad cross-section of market research companies
September 5, 2019 — ATLANTA, GA — P2Sample has teamed up with Women in Research (WIRe)to release a new white paper called “Women Executives in Market Research.” Authored by Jonathan J.D. Deitch, PhD, Chief Revenue Officer of P2Sample, the new paper evaluates the market research industry’s percentage of women in executive leadership roles and offers actionable solutions toward more equitable and representative industry leadership.
“I felt that this paper was an important exercise in unveiling if we, as an industry, are putting our money where our mouths are when it comes to diversity on executive teams,” said Deitch, who serves as a WIRe mentor, WIRe Advisory Board Member and was a past recipient of the WIRe Diversity Champion Award. “As the study reveals, we have a long way to go toward equal representation for women in leadership roles, something that I believe is vital for the future success in our industry.”
For the study, Deitch and a data collection team from P2Sample examined the presence of women in executive roles across a broad cross-section of market research companies. They approached the research under the premise that a company’s leaders have the greatest impact on culture and performance. Findings that are revealed in the paper show that women remain significantly underrepresented across nearly every executive function.
The paper concludes with recommendations for targeted and immediate action in the form of explicit recruitment objectives, visible measures of accountability, and internal and external engagement with stakeholders.
Data from the paper will be presented in part at the ESOMAR Congress during WIRe’s Best Places to Work Award Ceremony and Luncheon on 10 September 2019. Deitch will also be presenting the awards to both the winner and runner up for the annual award at the event.
