Hala El-Said, Minister of Planning and Economic Development collaborated with the National Council for Women “NCW” and launched a website for the initiative to count women in decision-making positions, whether in leadership positions or boards of directors of public and private institutions. Its main focus is to develop a comprehensive vision of the numbers and percentages of women’s presence in decision-making positions.

 This initiative comes under the auspices of president Abdelfattah El-Sisi, in his pursuit to monitor the status of women in decision-making positions, and keep up with the universal efforts to minimize the gender gap.

Initiative goals:

– Gather information and devise a valid, updated comparison between the number of men and women in decision-making positions over the last 3 years, 2019-2021.

– Determine the rate of women’s participation in leadership and decision-making positions in the previous years, and anticipate its future increase.

– Verify the degree to which Coronavirus affects the percentage of women’s presence in leadership and decision-making positions.

– Create important statistics on Governorates and sectors, in addition to the typical activities of women in leadership and decision-making positions. This would make it much easier to enforce the necessary policies to enhance the role of women.
