Our ambition

Welcome to The Gender Index. 

Currently 16.8% of active UK companies are led by women, and we are here to significantly increase that number – driving change through data.

Our shared ambition is to create a fairer future by providing a clear picture of the UK company landscape.


The Gender Index is a live, interactive tool that maps every single active UK company (totalling 4.4 million) in every country, region, LEP and local authority in real-time. With findings on gender, regions, sectors and investment, it’s a groundbreaking first-of-its-kind study.

Whether you are a female founder looking to expand, or a policymaker, corporate or investor with an interest; our free and simple website can provide what you need.
