Why gender balance is good for business
Recent history shows us that gender balance is vital for business. This webinar was delivered by Anne-Marie Taylor. Since 2018, the number of women on the boards of the largest publicly listed companies in Ireland increased from 18% to 27%, and the gap between Ireland and the rest of the EU narrowed from eight percentage points to just one percentage point. So, at this rate of progress, gender balance on boards will soon be sorted? Not quite. There are also undeniable facts that show why gender balance is good for business.
Anne-Marie Taylor is the programme director for Balance for Better Business, an initiative set up by the Tánaiste Leo Varadkar TD, to improve gender balance in senior business leadership. The Balance for Better Business Review Group published its third report in December, covering plcs, private companies and multinationals. In this webinar Anne-Marie will share the findings from the latest analysis of boards and executive teams and will discuss how companies are faring against the targets set by Balance for Better Business. What are the successes, and where do the issues still linger?
