The key aim is to set up a “knowledge hub” on how to get information about how to promote and enhance gender diversity on boards. This platform of collaborative knowledge provides a forum to exchange best practices collected through EWoB member organisations, sponsors, local IoDs and other relevant stakeholders (corporate governance networks, academics, business associations, institutions, think-tanks…).
Companies can reach out to EWoB members for support and guidance on gender diversity on boards.
Individuals, especially board-ready women and women already on a board, can get access to reference and up-to-date information on promoting and enhancing women on boards.
This Knowledge Centre’s objectives are to:
– disseminate best corporate governance practice (to manage and control a company, to find a fair balance between corporate governance-related parties such as board, shareholders, stakeholders, management, etc)
– disseminate projects and experience on balanced business models and strategy schemes for a “smart, sustainable and inclusive growth” (links to knowledge economy issues, human capital, innovation, intellectual assets, CSR, etc).
The Knowledge Centre is co-funded by the Progress Programme of the European Union.
Watch out for the launch of the Platform on this page on 6 October 2016.
