Creating a fairer Britain
Our Sex and Power 2011 report launches at a time of severe economic hardship for people across Britain which is proving to have a disproportionate impact on women in particular.
We hope that this report will highlight the continued under representation of women in senior public and private appointments. Moreover, we hope that people will look for ways to address this inequality to support the future growth of the UK economy.
We interviewed a selection of women who work as leaders in both the public and private sectors across the UK about how they made it to the top of their respective field and how other women can achieve the same.
How does this year's index compare to previous years? See our 2008 edition of Sex and Power.
