READY TO LEAD: UNDERSTANDING WOMEN'S PUBLIC LEADERSHIP IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA
This report introduces The Middle East Women Leaders Index (MEWLI), a first-of-its-kind data tool designed to quantify women’s representation in leadership in the public sector in the MENA region. This index introduces the Pipeline-Participation-Authority Framework (PPA) that seeks to measure gender parity beyond descriptive representation which limits measures of representation to reaching a set proportion of positions.
The Middle East Program's blog, Enheduanna, inspires diverse women contributors from the Middle East to voice their thoughts and express their ideas about the state of women in their countries and their often ignored yet important work to advance women’s issues across the region.
