CGI Global Webinar: 'Women in the boardroom'

The Chartered Governance Institute recently released its thought provoking report – Women in the boardroom: An international governance stocktake. While the last decade has seen an improvement in board gender diversity the change is slow and patchy, being most successful in statutory boards in countries where there is political will for change.

As part of International Women’s Day #ChooseToChallenge, we heard a global perspective from five experts on their take on the conclusions of the report and the challenge to increase diversity in the boardroom;
• What measures have worked well toward increasing the percentage of women in the boardroom?
• What have been the main drivers of increasing diversity and how do they differ across countries?
• What are the unique aspects of a role in governance that can be a stepping-stone to moving into board roles?
