Global Gender Gap Report 2020

14.02.2020 / Created by (EMWF)

The Global Gender Gap Report 2020 benchmarks 153 countries through a global index used as a framework for capturing the magnitude of gender-based disparities and tracking their progress over time.

The report finds that the gender gap has closed slightly since last years, with an average distance to parity completed at 68.6%, yet it will still require nearly 100 years to achieve full parity at the current pace. This timeline cannot be accepted in today’s globalized world, especially among younger generations who hold increasingly progressive views of gender equality. This is the reason why the World Economic Forum is supporting an emerging action agenda to hardwire gender parity in the future of work.

The report introduces a deeper analysis of gender gaps across industries and the role of gender-based occupational and skills imbalances. As a matter of facts, the 2020 edition focuses on labour market segregation along gender lines into differentiated sectors and analyses its consequences in term of innovation levels and gender pay gaps.
