More women in Europe's boardrooms – but how?

07 Mar 2012 09:39 | Beverley Sinton (Administrator)

The European Commission want your opinion on how to get companies to appoint more women to their boards of directors.

In Europe's top firms, just 1 in 7 board members is a woman.

France, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain already have laws setting quotas for company boards. Meanwhile, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Austria and Slovenia have rules on gender balance for the boards of state-owned companies.

The online consultation is open until 28 May. Comments will help the Commission develop proposals on improving gender balance on company boards, expected later this year.

I would urge you all to take part in the online consultation period NOW.
