Luxembourg: Publications Office of the European Union, 2012 - ISBN-13: 978-92-79-23283-1 - doi: 10.2838/65541


This report contains the comprehensive assessment announced one year ago and measures the situation on the basis of the most recent figures (January 2012) as compared to the report published last year. Section one of this report recalls the economic importance of gender diversity in corporate boardrooms. Section two provides a review of the current situation in terms of gender representation at the top level of major publicly listed companies across the EU and how it has changed over recent years. Section three gives a brief overview of recent important initiatives developed in Member States. Other non exhaustive examples of a wide range of recent actions and good practices undertaken by governments and businesses to increase women’s participation in management are included in Annexes 1 and 2.
