Women EdTech CEOs and Leaders. The Global State of Play

Women CEOs & Leaders. The Global State of Play.

International Women’s Day 2021 saw more women than ever occupying senior leadership roles around the world. We should celebrate this achievement while not forgetting the challenge of accelerating the progress already made. We need to take diversity in all of its forms much more seriously and urgently to ensure countries and industries everywhere realize the benefits of diverse leadership.

The chart below highlights the challenge and the opportunity ahead of us, in building a world of gender parity in some of our most important leadership roles. We often read and hear of reports about women CEOs and leaders in isolation, celebrating advances sector by sector or country by country. We felt it was important to visually show how significant women’s leadership is on the frontlines of education and healthcare, yet so nascent and slow to change in leading countries, institutions and firms that are re-shaping society.

The pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on women. As we emerge from the devastating consequences of COVID-19, we must ensure women’s leadership is on the forefront of any economic recover. Be that national, state, industry driven or inside your institution or firm.
