Closing Mexico's Gender Gap

Mexico ranks 89th out of 135 countries on the Global Gender Gap Index. While the gender gap on education has been closed, women still lag behind men in terms of labour force participation, representation in leadership positions and in terms of wages. Under the leadership of Margarita Zavala, First Lady of Mexico; Angelica Fuentes, CEO, Omnilife and Carlos Danel, Co-Founder, Compartamos, the World Economic Forum launched today the Mexico Gender Parity Taskforce, an initiative that aims to close the economic gender gap in Mexico by 10% in the next 3 years.
