Ellis is co-author of Gender Equality and Governance Index report

A new report, The Gender Equality and Governance Index: Empowering Women for the Prosperity of Nations, was released at the November 2020 meeting of the International Leadership Association meeting in Washington DC, and immediately thereafter at the Women Political Leaders Forum in Reykjavik, Iceland.

It brings together some of the most up-to-date and comprehensive databases on gender discrimination in the world, to cast a light on why the economic and political empowerment of women is vital not just for human prosperity but also for our future peace and security.

Sustainability scholar Amanda Ellis, director for global partnerships in the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory, was one of three authors.
