Gender inequalities persist around the world. Now more than ever, there is a need to close the global gender gap. Companies are uniquely positioned to do so across their entire value chains.

Our Gender Benchmark measures companies’ gender impacts to accelerate the private sector’s efforts to close the gender gap. The benchmark is fully transparent, publicly available and aligned with stakeholder expectations. It enables all stakeholders, from consumers and investors to employees and business leaders, to make informed decisions and encourage stronger corporate action on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
