Convergence Report Page 1

To address the need to apply a wider intersectional lens to the findings on women’s participation—all women’s participation—in politics and leadership positions, this Convergence Report (Phase 2 of Women in Leadership) focuses explicitly on groups of minority women. This report is a follow-up to our DIALOGUE sessions.
