These new frontiers of finance leadership bring great possibility and even greater challenges, and for women in finance and accounting there are still more challenges to overcome. Despite a much healthier representation in less senior finance roles, the gender gap remains markedly more pronounced in the C-suite, with Australia still lagging behind, with the top 100 employing almost half the number of female CFOs as their international peers.
