Women Power Leadership Index
An index that quantifies the relative power of women in public service positions globally.
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 this 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 Global Women’s Leadership Initiative Index is a global index that measures national and subnational levels, and looks at leadership across the five sectors of government: executive, legislative, judiciary, civil service and national security. It does not rank but rather allows for a comparison of countries over time to analyze the indicators that impact women’s access to, participation and power they hold as leaders across government sectors globally.
