The answer is in the EWoB – Ethics&Boards Gender Diversity Index, which will be launched during our annual EWOB-event on 28 November.
To pull the Index together, EWoB and Ethics & Boards looked at the presence of women on the boards and in the executive committees of the 200 largest companies of the Stoxx Europe 600 in the 9 European countries where EWOB is active: Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
In order to ensure the accuracy of the data, over the last few weeks we have been reaching out to each and every one of the 200 companies’ CEOs who are sending us very positive reactions!
During the evening, there will be powerful keynote content and a panel of CEOs will share with us their views on the topic. And to acknowledge those companies who have made real efforts in the field of gender diversity, 3 awards will be handed out to:
- 1. The company with the highest percentage of women on the Board
- 2. The company with the highest percentage of women on the Board and a woman serving as Chair of the Board
- 3. The company with the highest percentage of women on the Board and a woman as Chief Executive Officer or Chair of the Executive Board.
We are very much looking forward to the event, which will take place on Wednesday 28 November from 6 till 9.30 PM in the Steigenberger Hotel in Brussels. You are warmly invited! To register, please click here.
