Women on boards

Women make up less than 30% of board members and only 8% of CEOs of the largest listed companies in the EU.

This gender inequality in economic decision-making is not only unfair, it is a waste of human resources, talent and innovative potential.

In this sense, PES Women called for the EU’s Women on Boards Directive to be implemented, via the campaign "Women on Boards".
