Only 10% women board members in european companies.
Only 3% women CEOs in european companies.
Many companies are using various methods for promoting diversity and equality. Usually this is done by means of specific further courses, mentoring and networking in order to encourage and promote women for management duties at all levels. But unfortunately the results are not significant.
Balanced participation between women and men in company boards is not only important for our values of justice and equity, but also as an investment for a more productive and stimulating working environment and better economic performance of our companies, as most studies underline.
It is time for change and growth. Women's participation is at the heart of such challenges.
It is time for action and decisions from companies and policy makers to take binding measures and reach tangible results.
It is time for the mass media and the civil society to raise this important issue and mobilise our forces.
It is time for a means like quotas which will 'shake things up'.
