Zubia Hawcroft was invited to the European Parliament to discuss – The recruitment practices in top management and non-executive directors’ positions in Europe.
This note examines the barriers to recruitment of women in top management and non-executive directors’ positions in Europe from the perspective of an Executive Search Agency. It also analyses the proposed Directive and makes relevant recommendations for development of such a system. It concludes that, as a minimum, the barriers to recruitment should be the main focus of any action in this area.
