Atalanta in Politico London Influence
18 March 2021 · 1 min read
In a recent interview with Politico, our CEO, Eva Barboni, and COO, Elizabeth Ames, discuss the need for greater female representation in politics and explain why Atalanta’s work has never been more necessary.
The data doesn’t lie: recent statistics released by the United Nations show women serve as heads of government in only 21 countries, and 119 countries have never been led by a woman.
Eva and Elizabeth explore the reasons behind the disproportionate representation of women in public life—including the industry’s lack of women political campaigners, the highly critical media coverage of women leaders, and the pervasive threat of violence that many women politicians face.
As governments around the world navigate complex issues, from tackling climate change to building a post-pandemic future, the insights of women leaders will be essential. We’re incredibly proud of the work we do to help more women reach the top.
