WEF Gender Equality: The Social Innovators Empowering Women Worldwide

Gender parity globally has now recovered to pre-COVID-19 levels, but the pace of change has stagnated as converging crises slow progress, according to the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Report 2023. The Global Gender Gap Report 2023 finds that the overall gender gap has closed by 0.3% points, compared with the previous report, and the expected parity remains the same at 2154.


The State of Social Enterprise 2024, the first comprehensive global data set to estimate the size and scope of social enterprise worldwide, from the Schwab Foundation's Global Alliance for Social Entrepreneurship, finds that one in two social enterprises around the world are women-led, compared to only one in five conventional businesses.


Below are three social innovators recognized by the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship for their social impact and efforts to close the gender gap and empower women worldwide.
