Improving gender diversity in boardrooms

The CBI commented on proposals from the European Commission, aimed at achieving a better gender balance in the boardrooms of some European companies. The proposals apply to companies listed on stock exchanges in EU's Member States.

Katja Hall, CBI Chief Policy Director, said:

'Businesses will be relieved that the Commission has listened to their concerns. These new proposals rightly focus on the need to improve boardroom diversity, while allowing firms to recruit the best candidates from the widest possible talent pool. MEPs should get behind this approach.'

'Increasing the number of women in boardrooms is important for businesses, who know that gender diversity brings greater creativity, higher performance and better customer insight. That is why firms are already taking action to increase the flow of women to the top, such as targeting mentoring schemes at women and offering flexible working.'
