Pay gap

On average, US women's earnings are at around 80% of the average man's, though this varies significantly between race, occupation, and geography.

Achievement gap

With 80% of founders worldwide being male, female founders are still finding it difficult to get funding or be taken seriously as a founder. Additionally, as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic, women were disproportionately impacted, many being forced out of the workforce due to childcare needs and burnout.

Funding gap

Only 2-9% of all funds deployed to technology startups went to founding teams that included at least one woman (female founders of color receiving an even smaller sliver).

Learn from exemplary women

Hear more from female leaders in startups & tech who’re breaking the glass ceiling and setting an example for being agents for change worldwide.

global financial players

The wealth balance will continue to shift, giving women more influence in the global financial landscape.
