Women’s Power Gap

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

Since its launch in 2018, the WPG 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 2021, we published a report with the Rennie Center on the status of gender parity within K-12 education in Massachusetts. Our first national reports on Executive Compensation and Leadership in Higher Education among R1 universities were released in 2021 and 2022 respectively in partnership with AAUW.
