Launch of the Reykjavik Index For Leadership

Women Political Leaders (WPL), the global network of female politicians, and Kantar, the world’s leading data, insights and consulting company, launched the Reykjavik Index for Leadership at the annual Women Leaders Global Forum in Reykjavik, Iceland, from 26th to 28th November, 2018.

The Reykjavik Index for Leadership measures how people feel about women in power. As well as measuring the perceived legitimacy of male and female leadership in politics and professions, it also provides a measure of how men and women differ in their views and the extent to which gender is a non-issue when debating the suitability of individuals for positions of power.

The Index evaluates the G7 group of nations and 20 different industries and public professions, surveying gender equality attitudes of more than 10,000 men and women.
