WEBINAR: Measuring Women's Leadership: The Media's Guide to the Leadership Index


On November 1, 2017, Gwen K. Young, Director of the Global Women's Leadership Initiative and Women in Public Service Project hosted a webinar to show participants how to analyze findings and datasets in the Leadership Index, as well as discuss key findings and critical gaps in the global data to date.

The Leadership Index was released on October 17, 2017 and is a first-of-its-kind data framework to study women's leadership across countries and sectors.

Developed by the Wilson Center's Women in Public Service Project in collaboration with UNDP, this Index is the only multidimensional tool tracking the pathways for women to pursue leadership, the positions they currently hold, and the power they are able to exercise in those positions.

This included a Q&A with Gwen K. Young and the data expert who built the index.
