During the last 10 years diverse constituents on both sides of the Atlantic ranging from women’s organizations, institutional investors to stock exchanges and legislators have brought increased attention to the issue of boards lacking in gender diversity. They have launched and implemented initiatives, policies and legal quotas. Nonetheless, the pace of change has continued to be slow.
