UN Global Compact - BCG Report: Corporate Africa Advancing Gender Equality

The UN Global Compact and Boston Consulting Group (BCG) conducted a landmark survey of men and women across five major African economies (Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria and South Africa). The survey found there is a significant expectation-reality gap with many believing there was gender parity in spite of empirical evidence and men and women’s own experiences in Africa showing otherwise. The survey outlined steps private sector companies must take to drive forward gender equality in business.
