London Event 19 October: A Woman’s Place Is Europe: Should we legislate quotas?

Should the EU legislate on quotas for women in public company boards? (Link) Some countries, both inside and outside the EU, have already gone down this route, in an effort to improve women’s representation at the top in business. But is this the best approach and should it be adopted across Europe?

Just days ahead of the announcement of a long awaited European Commission’s proposal which might kick-start legislation in this area we will debate these issues with:

Mary HoneyballMEP (London, Labour), Anthea McIntyre MEP (West Midlands, Conservative), Helena Morrissey, CEO Newton Investment,  founder of The 30% Club, Petter Sørlien, Mission of Norway to the European Union, Moderator: Andrew Hill, Management Editor, Financial Times

The event is open to all but space is limited.
