Event Details

"Closing the global gender gap in work would not only be equitable in the broadest sense but could double the contribution of women to global GDP growth between 2014 and 2025." McKinsey Global Institute

A global movement is taking place. Gone are the days when gender inequality can take a back seat. Across the globe people from business, academia, politics and even Hollywood are pushing transformative agendas to close the unjust gulf between men and women. And the UK is playing a leading role in the debate. A new Women's Equality Party has just launched to fight for free childcare and equal parental leave; young actress Emma Watson called for economic and political parity at Davos in January this year; and some of our biggest companies have committed to end masculine boardroom control.

Join Chicago Booth, McKinsey & Company and the 30% Club for the launch of "The Power of Parity: How Equality for Women Can Drive $12 Trillion in Global Growth". The most comprehensive research to date that estimates the size of the economic potential from achieving gender parity.
