Leadership teams that are representative of the world we live in are better at their jobs. That's why She Changes Climate is campaigning for a 50:50 split of men and women in the top levels of the COP26 leadership team.
Our ethos is founded in the scientifically-proven fact that diverse boards and leadership teams are better at being leaders, better at governance, and more successful in the work they do. They're better at negotiation, get better results and can make more inclusive and balanced decisions because they are able to draw on wider knowledge bases and experiences.
When it comes to climate change, being representative isn't about looking good, it's about setting a good example and doing the best job possible. Not just for the nations being represented, but for every single one of their citizens.
Our current focus is on getting COP26 to achieve a 50:50 split of men and women in its top-level leadership team in the UK, but our global missions is to ensure ALL delegations have at least a 50% representation of women at their top levels."
