Pushing for Change : A 40% Gender Equality Target for Corporate Boards

Today, the IGPPO releases a policy paper that includes key practical proposals to increase the number of qualified women directors on corporate boards in Quebec and Canada

Currently, corporate boards of directors are not taking full advantage of the benefits that qualified and competent women can bring. Representation by both genders on corporate boards should thus be increased to a minimum of 40%.

The Institute for Governance of Private and Public Organizations proposes five major Recommendations to enhance the representation of women on corporate boards.
