This repository is an initiative by the partner institutions of the Inter-American Task Force on Women’s Leadership. It is aimed to provide a mapping of the initiatives and experiences implemented and addressed to promote and strengthen women’s leadership as well as their participation and equal representation in decision-making, in order to recognize and disseminate the efforts carried out throughout the Americas and the Caribbean, and boost the multiplication of commitments and actions from all of the key stakeholders in achieving the target 5.5 of the Sustainable Development Goal 5.
In addition, the repository contains a data bank of specialized publications on topics related to women’s leadership at different ambits in order to provide knowledge products on this matter.
