50/50 LEADERSHIP’S VISION
Our vision is that 50% of leaders are women.
WHEN WOMEN LEAD:
• Boards are more effective because women bring a different perspective
• Businesses are more profitable when there are women included in top management
• Conflict resolution is swifter and more permanent
• Girls have role models to follow
• Women are attracted to those organizations as members, consumers, and investors.
WHY DOES EQUAL LEADERSHIP MATTER?
Women represent approximately 70% of the 1.2 billion people living in poverty throughout the world and they own only 1% of the world’s wealth
Women lag behind men in control over essential resources:
Wealth Access to material goods
Women are impoverished in:
Skills Fair pay
Mobility Political representation
Pressures on their available time and energy linked to gender role responsibilities
