Legal Instruments for Gender Quotas in Management Boards

PE 474.413
Note requested by the European Parliament's Committee on Gender Equality



The note offers an analysis of the existing legal instruments for gender quotas on management boards. It addresses the range of companies that are targeted, the proportion of each gender to be represented, the timetable for implementation, the sanctions that can be applied and the nature of the legal regime within which the laws are developed. The focus is on legal instruments in the Member States of the EU.
