Occupational position

Women are generally employed in lower positions than men: they are more often in non-management positions. Men are much more often self-employed or employed as members of the board of directors or with a supervisory role. These differences exist even between men and women with the same educational level.

The proportion of women among employees who are members of the board of directors and those with a supervisory role has risen slightly since 1996 and now constitutes a little more than a third.
