Latin America has long lagged other regions when it comes to gender diversity in the C-suite. In 2011, women held only 8 percent of executive committee positions at companies surveyed in Latin America, compared to 14 percent at companies in the United States and 15 percent in Norway, according to McKinsey.
But gender balance on the executive team has become a bigger concern among Latin American corporations over the last few years. In a newer, 2013 survey by McKinsey, 37 percent of executive respondents in Latin America said gender diversity was a top priority at their companies, compared to 21 percent in 2010.
