Global women's leadership initiative index

22.02.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

The Leadership Index shows us where women are in governments around the world, how much power they hold and how they got to their positions of leadership. The index explores the data through three pillars – pathways, positions and power – to understand the correlations between different variables, decisions and policies and how those decisions ultimately affect how much power women hold in public office. The Leadership Index focuses on positions across the five sectors of government: executive, legislative, judiciary, civil service and security — and also from the national to local levels.

The Index and the Data Portal are initiatives of the Women Public Service Project which has the goal of increasing the percentage of women in public office to 50% by 2050: 50x50.
