Our Story

The Gender Index was conceived to establish a benchmark of the current level of activity undertaken by SMEs across the UK who are owned and led by female founders.

Broken down on a national, devolved government and local level, The Gender Index will bring together world class research and private company expertise to identify the economic impact of female founders. 

This unique data and research report will be published in March 2022:

·      In print form.
·      As an online PDF.
·      Digitally on a dedicated interactive website to encourage greater access to the live data.
