About the Survey

This survey explores findings from over 7,000 professional female respondents worldwide in Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, India, the United States and the United Kingdom. The survey was fielded in February 2017 by Censuswide.

How it began

A year ago, to mark International Women’s Day, Egon Zehnder conceived Leaders & Daughters, a series of events that brings the world’s most admired leaders and their daughters together to uncover the motivations, challenges and opportunities that face the next generation of professional women. In 2017, we go further. In celebration of International Women’s Day, we will host Leaders & Daughters events in more than 40 cities worldwide.


We share one common goal: to collectively pave a better future for the next generation of women leaders. Join the conversation on Twitter and LinkedIn at #LeadersAndDaughters.
