Despite significant advances in education and political participation, women remain underrepresented in leadership positions in politics and business across the globe. In many countries, policy-makers have responded by introducing gender quotas in politics and increasingly, many have expressed an interest in requiring gender quotas for corporate.
Female representation falls with seniority. In Europe, despite a labor force that is 45% female, women only average 11.9% membership when it comes to companies’ boards of directors. The percentage is 9.9% in the Americas, drops to 6.5% in the Asia-Pacific region, and down to 3.2% in the Middle East and North Africa.
We hold seminars, conferences, campaigns and hackathons every year to encourage women to come forward and be equal participant in the economies of the world.
