European Women Shareholders demand Gender Equality

European Women Shareholders demand Gender Equality

The European Women Shareholders Demand Gender Equality (EWSDGE) project is about gender balanced leadership, gender equality, and fairness in corporate boards.
In order to progress corporate policies (and to inspire corporate culture change), the project took practical steps in 12 EU Member States by visiting more than 100 Annual General Meetings of the highest turnover companies from January to September 2015. EWSDGE demanded to know how the company would improve the percentage of women in decision-making positions faster and more effectively.
The amazing and surprising results of the activities will be discussed at the final conference on the 11th of February in Brussels. What should be the next steps for action? Do the results confirm the need for the implementation of European and/or national legislation with regard to women in decision making positions?
