The World Benchmarking Alliance (WBA) has analysed 1,006 companies across ten industries and 80+ countries, providing a comprehensive view of gender equality efforts in the private sector. Companies in the Gender Benchmark are assessed across the six measurement areas: governance and strategy, representation, compensation and benefits, health and
well-being, violence and harassment, and marketplace and community. The findings reveal an average score of 17%, the highest only just over 50%, and 12% scoring zero. Despite poor overall performance, top companies committing to gender equality and addressing unpaid care stand out. The report emphasizes that more action is needed, especially in addressing violence and harassment at work, and power imbalances in supply chains, urging collective efforts to overcome gender inequalities.
