Women’s Power Gap Initiative

The Women’s Power Gap (WPG) Initiative at the Eos Foundation seeks to dramatically increase the number of women leaders from diverse backgrounds across all sectors. The Initiative conducts and commissions actionable research on prominent sectors of the economy, measures the extent of the power gap, and proposes solutions to reach parity. Data on gender, and racial/ethnic background is captured.

Since its launch in 2018, the WPG Initiative has issued reports on the status of gender parity in Massachusetts within: Top 25 Corporations, higher education, public boards and commissions, and prominent business advocacy organizations. In late 2020 we will issue a report with the Rennie Center on the status of gender parity within k-12 education in Massachusetts. Our first national report on Executive Compensation in Higher Education among R1 universities will be released in early 2021 in partnership with AAUW.
