It would seem that the culturally rooted narrative of a male leader is long gone and that managerial competencies have no gender, right? A nationwide study, “Believe in yourself” conducted on a representative sample of Poles in collaboration with SAP allowed us to uncover a secret hidden under the cloak of declarations – until now.
Client: SAP Poland
Research method: iCode Smart test
Goal: determining if there are hidden emotions and attitudes towards women holding managerial positions in companies
- on a declarative level, 82% of Poles agree that women can hold managerial positions…
- …but, in fact, only 1 person out of 4 believes on an emotional level that women are suitable for managerial positions
- 82% of Poles agree that women can hold managerial positions
- conclusion of results without iCode: the belief in managerial competencies of women does not need to be strengthened in either of the sexes. But is that really so?
- the measurement of emotional certainty revealed that only 27% of respondents believe that women are suitable for holding managerial positions!
