About the Forum

In some countries it is mandated, through legislation, that at least 40% of boards of listed companies must be female and at least 40% of these boards must be male.

At the Forum the key presenters and delegates will debate the pros and cons of mandatory gender quota legislation and the practical realities of achieving these quotas. The focus will also be on whether enough progress has been made in some countries to appoint more women to boards, which may indicate that legislation is not required – the soft law approach versus the hard law approach to reach these gender quotas will be a key theme of the Forums.
