Why invest in developing stronger women leaders?

According to a study by McKinsey & Company, companies with a higher representation of women in executive positions are 21% more likely to experience above-average profitability compared to companies with lower representation.

A report by Catalyst found that Fortune 500 companies with the highest representation of women on their boards outperformed those with the lowest representation by a significant margin, with a 66% higher return on invested capital.

The Peterson Institute for International Economics conducted a global survey of over 21,000 firms and found that having women in top management positions is associated with a 15% increase in profitability.

A study by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) revealed that companies with gender-diverse boards are more likely to have better corporate governance practices, including increased transparency, accountability, and risk management.

The World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Report 2020 estimated that closing the gender gap in economic participation and opportunity could add $13 trillion to global GDP by 2030, highlighting the immense economic potential of women's leadership in business.
