Women Leaders and Gender Parity Programme

Women Leaders and Gender Parity Programme

Through the Women Leaders and Gender Parity Programme, the World Economic Forum is committed to promoting women’s leadership and closing global gender gaps. The programme strives to increase the participation of women in the Forum’s activities by ensuring their involvement as members in communities and inviting women leaders to be active contributors to the global dialogue.

The programme also aims to to monitor progress of countries through benchmarking tools that measure the global gender gap and to showcase best practices in the business world for increasing gender diversity. This unique content is used to promote dialogue and catalyze action through Gender Parity Groups – multi-stakeholder communities of highly influential leaders (50% women and 50% men) committed to closing gender gaps.
