Women are powerful change agents. The wide-ranging advantages of diversity and gender parity in leadership and decision-making are increasingly recognized in all spheres. 

However, a 2020 analysis by Mercer of over 1,100 organizations across the world found a leaky pipeline for women in leadership:

Executives: 23%

Senior managers: 29%

Managers: 37%

Professionals: 42%

Support staff: 47%

It is time for the world to acknowledge the benefits of women in leadership and commit to putting even more women in positions of power. Women still make up a very small percentage of those who make decisions in politics, business, and society. The benefits of elevating women in decision-making for politics, corporations, and communities make the case for balancing the power dynamics in leadership clearer than ever.
