Diversity delivers what is needed to become more resilient, with a view to addressing future global challenges. It is ten years since the European Commission put forward a proposal to require 40% female representation on executive boards of all listed companies.
Based on 2021 data there has been some progress towards this, with France and Norway achieving 35% representation of women in leadership roles. However, women in CEO roles were reported in just 7% of the 650 companies surveyed. In this context, it is no surprise that recent years have seen many more female leaders of EU institutions, including the president of the EU Commission, the European Central Bank, the ESMA and the EIOPA, to name just a few.
