Why are the creative industries so male dominated?
There’s a weird phenomenon going on in the creative industries. While the number of women studying art and design continues to greatly outweigh the amount of men, in industry, the figure is completely turned on its head. Men dominate the creative industry workplace — and not by a slight margin either. Our annual Salary Survey statistics consistently highlight a difference, with women only amounting to 41% of our candidates in 2021, and only 30% in 2020. In fact, since 2016 our applications have consistently been male dominated.
