Report: Myths and barriers preventing the progression of women
The benefits of diversity no longer need to be proven. However, it is clear that gender inequalities persist, particularly in executive committees and among CEOs. This report, "Myths and barriers preventing the progression of women: analysis and solutions", developed by Mazars in partnership with the Gender Balance Observatory, is designed for leaders who wish to concretely advance equality in their organisation.
At the end of 2021, we surveyed over 1,000 executives around the world for our annual C-suite barometer. Emerging from the pandemic, leaders were optimistic. The resilience businesses showed in 2021 will undoubtedly be needed in the months ahead. Our study reveals leaders are investing and making commitments, especially around ESG, but there appears to be a gap between intent and implementation. Now is the time for action.
The future of audit: market view – myths, realities and ways forward
The audit profession faces a decisive moment: market expectations are shifting, technology is empowering auditors and strengthening quality, the case for audit’s evolution is growing and a series of headline corporate failures have raised questions about the quality of service companies can expect.
Trust matters – it is a key factor in building strong relationships with customers, employees, investors and all key stakeholders. But even more importantly, it is essential to the stability of our societies and democracies. Our blog series, ‘The trust equation’, aims at sharing reflections from Mazars leaders on how businesses can drive greater confidence through responsible strategies, sustainable business models, transparency, and on the role of our profession in fostering trust.
