In November, the European Women on Board initiative invites selected female professionals to a network and speed dating event with head hunters for board positions. Dr. Claudia Nagel was present a member of the International Board Professionals.

European Women on Board is a European initiative with the following goals:


We will develop the European network of “first tier” non-profit organizations by promoting and increasing the number of women in boards. Now there are 20% women of NED listed companies. At the same time, European Union intends to promote a target of 40% in 2020 in roughly 5000 companies.


We have built an international female talent pool to offer opportunities to board-ready women, so they can reach top positions with international visibility and board mandates at European level. Thereby they are able to present the added value they can offer to boards.


We actively participate in the debate of diversity on boards in order to improve the practice of corporate
governance, innovation and more balanced business models. We share the interest of companies and non-profit organizations to innovate, develop and grow.
