A COMMITMENT FOR EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN ON BOARDS OF DIRECTORS

The working group "Think Tank Directors in Boards", 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

  • To aspire for equal representation on Boards of Directors,committees, andon the main female governmental bodies.
  • To analyze the lists of female specialists that are accesible within the market, before choosing the right candidate for a managerial or counseling position, 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.) interested in giving visibility to professional women, helping them through various actions: press releases, interviews, social and networking events, talks, etc.
  • To train the new generations in order to increase the number of future female leaders and counselors through the creation of mentoring and support programs, specific training programs,committees, etc.
  • To promote transparency in the diversity policies followed by 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.
