Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a truly gender-equal world? The world may have to wait until the year 2154 for this to happen, according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2023. At current rates of progress, it will take 131 years to close the global gender gap, but some countries are much closer to achieving gender parity than others. Nordic countries occupy 4 of the report’s top-5 list of countries with the smallest gender gap.
  • The global gender gap will take until the year 2154 to close at current progress levels
  • Nordic countries lead the world in eliminating gender inequality.
  • Iceland has been the world’s most gender-equal country for the past 14 years.
  • Parity in women’s labour force could increase economic output by more than 30% IMF. 
Iceland maintains its place at the top of the global ranking – for the 14th consecutive year – with more than 90% parity, followed by Norway (87.9%) up one place from 2022, and Finland (86.3%) drops one place to third.
In its annual Global Gender Gap Report, the WEF uses LinkedIn data to spot trends for women in the workforce. This year, that data suggests things are getting worse, not better, for women’s careers. This is particularly true of leadership roles and positions in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Learn More /…
