ABOUT THE FEMALE QUOTIENT
The Female Quotient taps into the power of the collective to advance equality. Through our portfolio, we bring visibility to the invisible, create actions and accountability for change, and help companies close the gaps across parity, pipeline, and policy. Together with our partners, we are adding more women to every equation, from college campuses to the corner office, across sectors and industries.
Through our work, we tackle three fundamental, persistent challenges to parity:
- Gender inequalities still exist — and, in many cases, are getting worse.
- Women in business lack a community and a platform to raise their visibility.
- Organizations lack effective ways close their equality gaps and engage the best talent.
When you add more women to any equation, there is a return on equality:
Companies with diversity are 75% more likely to bring innovative ideas to market.
Organizations with more women in leadership deliver 1.7x stronger leadership.
GREATER MARKET SHARE
Companies with diversity are 70% more likely to capture new markets.
Organizations with more women in leadership deliver 1.4x sustained profitable growth.
For every 100 men promoted and hired to manager, only 72 women are promoted and hired.
Men hold 62% of manager-level positions, while women hold just 38%. The number of women decreases at every subsequent level.
Women account for less than a third (29%) of senior roles globally.
In the United States, on average, women make $0.82 to every $1 earned by men for annual earnings.
At the current rate of progress, it will take 99.5 years to achieve global gender equality and 257 years to close the economic gender gap.

"The Female Quotient has been extremely effective at building community and raising the level of conversation and careers of women who have been a part of that community from the beginning."
"With inspiration from The Female Quotient, educational institutions actress the global SAP Next-Gen network of more than 3,700 educational institutions in 116 countries can join the Equality Lounge® @ Campus movement, helping build awareness of the potential for innovations developed by young women, identifying barriers to having more girls and young women pursue STEM education and careers, and working collaboratively to take actions to address these barriers."
"The official Davos delegations are 22% women, but the lounge is the biggest game in town for women, connecting business leaders, thinkers, politicians and academics, and bringing a focus to what we're doing."
"As leaders, we always try to lead by example, and a great example is our alliance with the Female Quotient. We have joined with them at many of the events we sponsor, as well as our internal events throughout the organization, to create positive atmospheres and spaces for dialogue."
