Forum, organized by Women in a Legal World and the European Parliament, with the support of Santander Bank and the Mutualidad de la Abogacía, analyzed during the past 24 to 25 September 2020 the situation of women in the Boards and Steering Committees, counting on extraordinary speakers.

Commitment to Equal Opportunities for women on Boards of Directors

The working group “Think Tank advisers on boards of directors”, composed by the undersigned institutions and associations, has the objective of connecting existing or ready-to-launch initiatives from educational bodies, institutions and businesses, in order to create an umbrella platform, that makes diversity in boards possible for the sake of the necessary complementarity between men and women, based on the firm belief that this goal will result, without a doubt, in a more co-responsible and efficient society.

To this end, the working group commits to take on reasonable measures and initiatives within their reach that help promote an increased presence of women on Boards of Directors.

Key Commitments

Try to achieve equitable representation on the Boards of Directors, governmental committees and main bodies of female members.

To analyze the lists of female specialists that are accesible within the market, before taking the decision on the right candidate for a managerial position or counselor, taking into account those women who are equally worthy of that position based on their career and professional experience.

To strive to get different social agents (media, institutions, companies, etc.) give visibility to help professional women through various actions: press releases, interviews, social and networking events, talks, etc.

Train new generations so that increasingly more women leaders and future counselors through the creation or support mentoring programs, specific training programs, etc

Promote transparency of diversity policies followed in each organization

To provide clear reports in order to educate on the progress we're making regarding equality.

To invite any individuals and organizations to implement their own actions if they share these goals.
