The first index of its kind, consisting of the highest-rated companies in the world for advancing women on boards and in executive management

To construct the index, the Impax Gender Analytics team rates companies on multiple criteria of gender leadership. Only the highest-rated companies make it into the index. These 400+ companies are, in our view, the best companies in the world when it comes to advancing gender diversity.
