Women on Boards: What is Changing in Europe

WOB Turkey Board Member Lale Saral Develioğlu will moderate a fireside chat with EWOB Chair Hedwige Nuyens in this exclusive event. What has changed in Europe in terms of gender representation at Board level in the past 10 years? What is EWOB’s plan in the implementation of this directive? With remote work becoming part of the norm and the world heading towards full globalisation, how does that raise the chances of women looking for Board roles outside their own geographies?

Join us on May 9th at 3pm CEST at this members and partner organisation members only event to discover the answers to these questions and more.
