Join us to discuss the 2023 results
Which tools and approaches can help us transform our sector?
Despite the social impact sector’s aim to make the world a more equal, peaceful and just place, many organisations have themselves not yet achieved gender equality: women continue to be underrepresented in the sector’s leadership.
That’s why we monitor the proportion of women on staff and in leadership annually with the FAIR SHARE Monitor.
