Three months ago I wrote post about a survey that showed that women board members reduce the risk of bankruptcy in Swedish companies. More recent statistics show that female entrepreneurs gain more and more influence in the country; they start more companies, they get higher positions and they control more money.
Globally women have become more active both as producers and consumers and in Sweden this change appears to be very rapid right now. Four out of ten women aim at some kind of managerial position and it is not just words - more women than men choose to get a university degree and they also get better grades.
As I have mentioned before the one aspect of diversity that gets the most attention in this country is gender and now that women are taking a step into the creative part of the economy you can read about it every day. Sometimes increased creativity is mentioned but it is never explained or seen as an important aspect of this paradigm shift. Hopefully we will see this diversity generate innovation soon.
