WEPs Tool 2024 Trends Report: Advancing Gender Equality Amidst Polycrisis

Companies have chosen to look at their policies and existing programmes to understand how they can better support women in the workplace, marketplace and community. More than 9,000 CEOs have signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), a set of seven Principles guiding business to advance gender equality. Building on these Principles, the WEPs Gender Gap Analysis Tool is an online self-assessment that allows companies to anonymously assess their gender equality performance.

This report presents the aggregated findings of the self-assessment tool for 2,777 companies across 117 countries for selected indicators from 2 December 2021 to 1 December 2023. The results cover companies of varying sizes, with more than half being large enterprises and 45 per cent being small- and medium-sized enterprises. The companies come from a broad range of industries from healthcare to financial services.
