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 2019, these gaps are NOT acceptable. Join the effort for Gender Parity Now.
The Women’s Power Gap Initiative aims to dramatically increase the number of women leaders from a diverse set of backgrounds across all sectors in Massachusetts. We conduct research, measure the extent of the power gap, and propose solutions to reach gender parity. The Women’s Power Gap in Higher Education: Study and Rankings is the first in the series of sectors the Initiative will explore.
