Where are the Executive Women?

[Brussels, 16 January 2017] Save the date for an event hosted by Angelika Mlinar MEP and co-organised by the European Women’s Lobby and PWC.

Since 2010, the share of women on company boards has doubled from 12% to 25% across the EU. However, the vast majority of women on company board are non-executive, and 96.5 % of European CEOs today are male - with no significant increase since 2010. Research shows that quotas regulating the share of women in the boardroom do not increase the number of female CEOs.

This event aims to discuss gender inequality in senior leadership roles in the business sector as well as possible strategies to increase the share of women in executive roles in companies and builds on the 2015 event ‘Changing the Game - Gender Equality in Business’

Tuesday February 7, 2017 : 12:00-14:00
