Women on top
A new series investigating why so few women make it to the top in business and presented by entrepreneur Hilary Devey begins tonight on BBC Two.
Women on Top starts tonight at 9pm. In it Hilary looks at possible reasons why men still hold more than 80 per cent of Britain's senior jobs, examining factors like maternity leave, the cost of childcare and women's leadership style.
Along the way, she finds out about the prospects for women in her own company and questions her belief that it is up to the individual to smash through the glass ceiling. She also learns that mixed gender teams can be good for business.
