Women on Boards: The EU 40% objective (LISIG invitations) (Fully Booked)
Tue 15 Oct 13 at Stephenson Harwood LLP, London

Venue sponsored by:
Stephenson Harwood LLP

The European Union recently backed a proposal to introduce a quota of at least 40% female non-executive directors on the boards of larger listed companies by 2020. While it has been presented as an objective rather than mandatory, the intention is for equally qualified women to be given preference to help achieve this goal.

As a prominent female investor with a legal background, Nicola Horlick, CEO of Bramdean Asset Management LLP, will be sharing her thoughts on questions this quota may raise – in particular its enforceability, practicality and legitimacy.

This event has been organised by CFA UK's Legal Issues Special Interest Group (LISIG). If you would like to be notified of future events please click here join the group on LinkedIn.
