Objective of the Project

The project’s goal is to increase the representation of women in decision-making positions. We will focus on state businesses, town and listed companies and the principle of assigning their statutory board. On the level of the government and statutory cities, we will prepare a strategic document containing the results of our analysis, suggestions of the European Commission and recommendations for a greater representation of women in leading positions. We will expand the scope of Memorandum Diversity 2013+ and the group of signatories from 20 to 50. We want to target at least 15 companies and achieve a change in the perspective of the company’s management regarding this problem. By transferring the foreign know-how of our Norwegian partner, we will ensure public demand for higher interest of companies’ management in a greater representation of women in leadership. We will support the project with an information campaign and a set of targeted actions for CEOs and opinion leaders. In cooperation with the publishing house Economia, we will ensure the interest of specialized and wide public.
