This nation-wide study was conducted in seven sectors in Pakistan: Business and Entrepreneurship, Law and Justice, Politics and Governance, Arts and Media, Development, Civil Society and Sports. The aim was to understand the varying perceptions surrounding definitions of leadership and differences in styles, to identify challenges that women face while progressing in their fields, to highlight the socioeconomic implications of both absence and presence of female leadership and to suggest strategies to integrate women leadership to create a more diverse and inclusive society.
