At an event organized by the Civil Service, the Superintendent of Electricity and Fuels, Marta Cabezaand the Deputy Director of Management and Development of People of the Civil Service, Lorena Perezanalyzed the progress of women in leadership positions in the public sector.

The discussion “Female leadership in the ADP system” brought together leading professionals to analyze the difficulties and opportunities faced by women in senior public management.

In this context, the information provided by the Deputy Director of Senior Public Management (ADP) became relevant, Danae Mlynarzwho said that the percentage of women in leadership positions in the public sector currently reaches 41%, a figure that is slightly higher than that of developed countries.

“Now, we have the challenge of sustainability, with respect to this task. We know that talent is equally distributed between men and women, and we have to continue advancing in that regard. In the case of OECD countries, they are at 40% of female leaders in the public sector, so our results make us feel proud, because we are at a very good level, but now the task is to maintain that level,” said Mlynarz.

For its part, Marta Cabezathe first woman elected as head of the SEC through a public competition in the history of the organization, She said that “many times, we are the women who apply a self-bias to ourselves, thinking that we do not have the attributes to be chosen. And the truth is that this is not the case, since We have the same potential as men. and therefore, the same chances of winning these public competitions.”

In this sense, Lorena Perez She invited women “to dare to apply. Women are much more effective than men in the results of competitions, because even though we apply much less, when we do, we go very far. Therefore, the challenge is to dare to take the step, so that public services have more women in management positions, which will allow the public service and the challenges that our country faces today to have different and inclusive perspectives.”

It should be noted that the percentage of female leadership in the public sector is higher than that currently existing in the private sector, which would be above the 30%as revealed by the Civil Service directives.
