Joint press conference of Viviane Reding and Olli Rehn, Vice-Presidents of the EC, on the proposal of the EC on increasing Gender Equality in the Boardrooms of Listed Companies

Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, and Olli Rehn, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Economic and Monetary Affairs and the Euro, gave a joint press conference on the proposal of the EC on increasing Gender Equality in the Boardrooms of Listed Companies.
The EC proposed legislation with the aim of attaining a 40% objective of the under-represented sex in non-executive board-member positions in publicly listed companies, with the exception of small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Boards were dominated by one gender: 85% of non-executive board members and 91.1% of executive board members were men, while women make up 15% and 8.9% respectively.
Despite an intense public debate and some voluntary initiatives at national and European level, the situation had not changed significantly in past years: an incremental average increase of the number of women on boards of just 0.6 percentage points per year had been recorded since 2003.
