Gender Index

What cannot be measured, cannot be managed. The proposed Gender Index will provide a clear conceptual framework, consistent methodology and a valuable tool to track the progress and map the measures taken by companies to meet diversity goals. The index will help to examine the correlation between diversity and productivity, identify obstacles that exist in achieving the goals, and provide a platform to highlight progress, spark debate, and prompt others to learn by example from the best- in class companies.
