Candidates, do you realise how critical it is to get into a progressive company? It makes a huge difference.

The World Economic Forum predicts the global gender gap won't close until 2133. So candidates, we're asking you to vote with your feet and make a #PledgeForParity - and encourage your colleagues and senior managers to step up and help accelerate gender parity too so companies are better places where women work.

"Companies that advance women into leadership roles are going to have the upper hand, with more engaged workforces, stronger cultures and improved economic performance. We know that gender-balanced companies achieve better results. As business leaders we need to ask ourselves: Have we made enough progress? Are we helping enough women find their way into leadership roles in order to make our businesses better?"  says EY Global Chairman & CEO Mark Weinberger.
