Indicators of Impact

Are the solutions in place within your organization designed to increase women’s power and influence (WPI) in the workplace?

We define women’s power and influence as being in a position to make decisions, control resources, and shape policies and perspectives.

We have outlined four key indicators to measure progress concretely on WPI.

Does your solution address one or more of these key indicators?

Content Creation

Increasing the percentage of intellectual and cultural content created by women

Share of Leadership Roles

Increasing the percentage of women in senior roles across the public, private, and social sectors

Wages and Wealth

Narrowing the gap between earnings and wealth for women in comparison to men

Unpaid Care

Improving the division of caregiving and other household responsibilities done by women in comparison to men

Scoring Rubric

  • Does the organization implement policies, programs, or procedures that have accelerated women’s power and influence in the workplace?
  • Are the solutions designed in a way that they can potentially be scalable or used across organizations?
