In a world where workplace gender gaps persist, it is heartening to see women not just joining in, but stepping up to lead in certain sectors. One of these sectors? Talent acquisition.

A 2023 LinkedIn study that analyzed about 600,000 profiles in talent acquisition fields highlighted the dominance women have in the recruitment and talent space. In healthcare, for example, women make up a significant 74% of TA leaders. Even more surprising is that in typically male-dominated sectors like oil, gas and mining, women occupy roughly 52% of TA leadership roles.

Still, we know that disparities exist. A recent survey by RecruitmentMarketing.com and The Muse found that while there are more women in the workforce than ever before, we still have a ways to go before achieving gender equity at work and in the hiring process. The survey showed that 42% of women have encountered gender-biased or inappropriate questions during a job interview, and 41% have felt discriminated against during a job interview due to gender. In addition, 38% even said they hesitated to apply for a job based on perceived gender bias.

The need for rising female leaders is clear. That’s why in celebration of Women’s History Month, RecruitmentMarketing.com took the time to analyze internal hiring data and seek recommendations across the industry to highlight a list of superstar women making their mark in the talent acquisition space.
