HelpAge International has ranked fourth out of a group of 73 not for profit organisations in this year s FAIR SHARE Index which measures the number of women in leadership roles across the sector.
This is the highest ranking that HelpAge has scored in the annual index and reflects the organisation s commitment to achieving gender equity across the organisation, including in leadership roles.
We welcome the work done by the Fair Share Monitor and have carefully tracked our progress in the annual index. We are delighted to see HelpAge move up to 4th position in this annual monitor which reflects the work we have done to improve the representation of women in management. We have taken steps to address the gender pay gap, adopted a new diversity and inclusion policy, and implemented measures to ensure gender balance of our leadership teams and Board members,
said Justin Derbyshire, CEO HelpAge International.
The FAIR SHARE Monitor focuses on increasing the number of women in leadership positions within the global social impact sector, as well as increasing diversity among leadership positions.
Currently, 60% of HelpAge staff are women. 59% of leadership positions in the organisation are occupied by women, of which 39% are BIWOC (Black, Indigenous and Women of Colour). In 2022, we were ranked in 16th position.
