Using World Bank’s WBL 2024 Report to Drive Gender Equality

Join Women, Business and the Law Manager Tea Trumbic and SIPA alumnae Alexis Cheney ‘22 and Nayantara Vohra ’21 to discuss the main findings of the World Bank’s Women, Business and the Law 2024 Report and the report production process. This year’s report, the 10th in the series, finds that women worldwide enjoy less than two-thirds of the legal rights that men do, and that the weak implementation of laws exacerbates gender gaps. For the first time, the report analyzes not only the pace of legal reforms to create equal economic opportunity for women, but also countries’ efforts to implement those laws. The report finds a shocking implementation gap in all 190 economies measured.

This event is cosponsored by the Institute of Global Politics (IGP) at Columbia SIPA and the Economic and Political Development Concentration and the Gender and Public Policy Specialization  at Columbia SIPA.
