On 14 November 2012, the Members of the EC gathered for their weekly meeting in Brussels.
The College of the EC discussed about a legal instrument aimed at increasing gender balance on company boards in the EU.
Across the EU, company boards are currently dominated by one gender: 86.5% of board members are men while women represent just 13.5% (8.9% of executive members and 15% of non-executive members). 97.5% of the chairpersons are men and only 2.5% are women.
