Egypt Women on Boards Observatory: 2023 Annual Monitoring Report

2023 Egypt WOB Report

The 2023 Women on Boards annual monitoring report analyzes data and tracks records for the representation of women on boards and senior leadership positions of the Egyptian Exchange (EGX) listed companies, the banking sector, the public enterprise sector, and the non-banking financial sector supervised and regulated by the Financial Regulatory Authority. The women on boards indicator have significantly improved to 23.3% in 2023 from 19.7% in 2022. This sixth edition sustains the average 3% annual increase pattern achieved over the past four years. This steady progress suggests that participating companies are on track to meet the 2030 strategy goal of 30% women on boards by 2026.

This report is produced as part of UN Women Egypt and AUC-Women on Boards Observatory, partnership within the framework of the joint regional programme with ILO, “Promoting productive employment and decent work for women in Egypt, Jordan, and Palestine”, which is funded by the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) and “Women’ Economic Empowerment Programme”, which is funded by the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). Both programmes are implemented in partnership with the National Council for Women (NCW), the Ministry of International Cooperation, and the Ministry of Labor.
