Encouraging Women Across the European Union

Sunday, October 8, 2006

There was a European Presidency Ministerial meeting entitled "Women and Economical Decision Making" held in Helsinki recently which was attended by Meg. Ministers from the EU and the European Economic Area explained the measures they are taking to ensure greater numbers of women are in decision making positions, in the private sector including boardrooms and in the public sector. The host for the conference was Tuula Haatainen, Minister for Social Affairs and Health in the Finnish Government.


Meg told the meeting about the work being done to close the pay gap between men and women in the UK, and the innovative mentoring scheme where Chairmen of FTSE 100 companies mentor women in senior positions to help them progress toward being on a company board. Some countries favour a legislative approach, such as Norway where company boards will have to consist of at least 40% women by 2008. Other countries have adopted a voluntary approach. There was general acceptance that significant evidence exists across the EU that companies with women on their boards generally do better than those without.
