The network of women with board of directors training
The most successful source of recruitment for female board members since 2011
The debate about regulation increasing Gender Equality in the Boardrooms starts to have an impact.
Senior executives are beginning to realize the benefits of increasing the share of women in senior positions.
At the same time, women’s confidence is growing in expressing their ambitions, and in taking on bigger roles and board room positions.
I have been impressed by the Female Board Pool program and not least the level of talent that I meet.
The Female Board Pool is an excellent platform for women to meet, be trained, share experiences and build a beneficial network.
At the same time, the platform offers companies an easy access to women, who are capable and ready to take up board room responsibilities. The situation is developing well and the more mature executive leadership teams are now starting to take advance of increased female representation and got a plan with more balanced representation across the organisation at all levels.Steen Foldberg
