Only 30.8 per centRauf Ateş said, “For 2 years now, we are conducting a study on companies that practice positive discrimination for women. We wanted to award these companies this year. The percentage of the women’s participation in the work force has barely changed in the last decade. The percentage which was 26.6 per cent in 2003 could only increase to 30.8 per cent in 2013. As per the Gender Gap Index, we rank 127th among 138 countries in terms of women’s participation in economy. There are nevertheless companies that invest in female employees.”
