The Women’s Power Gap Initiative aims to dramatically increase
the number of women from diverse backgrounds in leadership positions.
We measure the power gap and propose solutions to reach
gender parity and fair representation for people of color across
prominent sectors of the economy.

 

Coming soon: K-12 Education in Massachusetts and
Executive Compensation in Higher Education among national R1 universities.

Sectors

Baseline Now

Women account for 51.5% of the population in Massachusetts, but are severely underrepresented in leadership positions. The Women’s Power Gap is the % of women in leadership subtracted from the % of men. The WPG is highlighted in three industries below. In 2020, these gaps are NOT acceptable. Join the effort for Gender Parity Now.
