Partnership Opportunities

Join global influencers in the effort to secure a seat at the table for the world's women leaders.

The Women in Public Service Project is pursuing a bold vision: women holding 50% of policy and political leadership positions by the year 2050.  We are moving this 50x50 vision forward by:

  • Driving transparency and transformation in governments and governmental solutions
  • Gathering and sharing information and evidence on the factors driving women’s leadership in public spaces
  • Enabling and inspiring emerging women leaders in political and policy positions around the globe

We believe that the 50x50 vision for global gender parity can only be achieved when institutions and societies are equipped to empower women leaders. To accomplish the 50x50 goal, we must know where we stand today.

Our Global Women’s Leadership Initiative Index is the only global comprehensive framework of key indicators driving women’s participation, leadership and power in governments across the globe. With this framework we can fill critical knowledge gaps with a data-driven evidence base, policies and metrics.

Through global convenings, groundbreaking research, and innovative partnerships, the Women in Public Service Project facilitates vital conversations around women’s leadership.

The Women in Public Service Project is an important resource of the Wilson Center, the only think tank to receive the Economic Dividends for Gender Equality (EDGE) Certification. Established by the U.S. Congress, the Center provides a trusted non-partisan platform, producing actionable ideas that bridge the gap between scholarship and policy.

The Wilson Center is recognized as the #1 regional studies think tank in the world, and the #5 think tank in the United States by the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
