Gender Diversity and Disclosure – Scorecard


The Gender Diversity and Disclosure Scorecard encourages business leaders in Pakistan to voluntarily participate in sharing best practices in gender diversity for the country's private sector. Participating companies will be evaluated and scored along 5 Gender Equity Principles (GEPs) that capture gender mainstreaming practices. These principles gauge the organization’s strategies and practices related to women’s empowerment.

For questions and comments on the Scorecard, please get in touch with Rajaa Bokhari, Programme Manager for D&I at the Pakistan Business Council: rajaa@pbc.org.pk
