About the Pythia Index

While measuring the percentage of women leaders in a company is important, it doesn’t fully capture the extent to which these leaders influence the business. The Pythia Index measures the degree of influence held by women leaders in an organization by calculating the percentage of employees with a woman manager in their reporting chain. The Pythia Index recognizes that women who have influence over larger numbers of employees have a larger sphere of impact.
