Although Mexican women have the necessary intellectual capacity, only a small percentage of them reach high management; 80 percent of the executive posts in Mexican enterprises are occupied by men, and 20 percent by women.

These figures were released Thursday by Jorge Ferrari, president of the Mexican Great Place to Work Institute that compiles and shares data and experience on working conditions in Mexico.

He said that of the 20 best Mexican enterprises for working women, only one is in the public sector.

Among 300 companies, Ferrari said, just five classified as the best firms with good working conditions: American Express Mexico, Harbin Meritor, Banamex Seguros, Banco Compartamos and CompuSoluciones.
