Gender diversity at all levels of a company, including the boardroom, is essential for inclusive and effective governance. This is why EWOB and the Slovenian Directors’ Association (SDA) are very happy to announce the start of their partnership. Through this collaboration we will unite EWOB’s expertise on gender equality and SDA’s commitment to effective corporate governance.
“Together with European Women on Boards (EWOB) we aim to promote gender diversity in corporate leadership positions across Europe in order to make positive change across the EU, both in terms of gender diversity and corporate governance.
With more diverse boards, corporate governance will improve as different perspectives and experiences are brought to the table. This could lead to better decision-making and ultimately better outcomes for companies.”
– Gorazd Podbevšek, Chair, Slovenian Directors’ Association (SDA)
The Slovenian Directors’ Association is a professional, non for profit, and non-governmental organisation that brings together members of Supervisory Boards, Directors, and other stakeholders of corporate governance. It plays a leading role in education, certification, and development of corporate governance and best practice for boards in Slovenian companies.
The SDA was founded in 1997 and is one of the oldest organisations of its type in Europe. Today, it brings together over 700 individual and 16 corporate members. It is also the most important custodian of corporate governance (CG) standards and opinion leader in Slovenia.
“The Women on Boards Directive has set a target of 40% of women on for European stock-listed companies. This goal will drive significant progress in gender diversity in decision-making across Europe, including in Slovenia, and will have a significant impact on corporate governance effectiveness.
We are therefore very pleased to join forces with a strong partner in Slovenia to work together to accelerate this change.”
– Kristen Anderson, EWOB CEO
