Gender balance on company boards

30-09-2020

In 2012, the European Commission proposed a directive to improve gender balance on company boards. It required that the under-represented sex make up 40 % of board members of companies listed on stock exchanges. Although the European Parliament supported the proposal in 2013, the directive has still not been adopted due to reservations from several Member States in the Council. Parliament is expected to hold a debate on the state of play of the proposed directive during its first October plenary session.
