Under the direction of WAPPP's former Executive Director Victoria Budson, WAPPP has engaged with institutions in Australia, France, Japan, Ecuador, the Netherlands, and Nigeria among many other nations to inspire the replication of programs similar to "From Harvard Square to the Oval Office" (Oval Office), and is currently in discussion with contacts in numerous other countries seeking to enhance the number of women participating and succeeding in public life. Sciences Po in France is the most recent institution to establish an Oval Office-modeled program, launching a curriculum in 2019.
The Female Political Representation & Intervention Impact Map (2020) below displays the percentage of parliamentary seats that are held by women in lower-house chambers around the world. The interactive tool was created and designed by WAPPP Fellow Giovana Rodrigues Manfrin using the latest data from the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU). Together with these percentages, which show global female political representation, we are able to also visualize how programs based on evidence-based insights – such as Oval Office and its inspired programs – are increasing the number of female-held seats around the world.
