This report draws on a qualitative study conducted by EMAH Social Development Consulting on behalf of The David and Lucile Packard Foundation to help inform future support for women’s leadership development in Ethiopia. The study was commissioned to examine the reasons that women continue to be underrepresented in leadership positions in both government and civil society organizations, despite efforts in recent years to address this gender gap through law and policy. Particularly, we explore the barriers and enabling factors that women experience in Ethiopia as they seek to advance in their chosen careers. We examine how these factors affect women’s motivation and ability to reach, retain, and succeed in positions of leadership.
