Analysing the opportunity cost of gender inequality on public visibility The study, presented by KREAB, develops the first index, on a global scale, which quantifies gender diversity in leadership roles across politics, business, and media. The report highlights the opportunity cost of the lack of equality in the field of public visibility in Spain, and analyses the value that equal representation of women and men in decision-making positions would have for the creation of wealth in the country.

Gender gap in public visibility

In Spain, only one in four decision-makers at the highest levels of power is a woman. The under-representation of women in leadership positions in critical spheres of influence stands at 25.8%, well below a parity threshold of 40%.

Opportunity cost

The report examines the economic impact of women’s under-representation in leadership and decision-making roles, and finds that if Spain were to increase the presence of women in positions of public visibility from the current 25.8% to 40%, the country’s GDP would grow by 18.6%.

The report confirms the glass ceilings in politics, media and business that prevent women from holding positions of responsibility, on an equal footing with men, in key areas of our society.
