There is compelling business case for more diverse boards and leadership teams. We are committed to achieving a better gender balance at the senior levels of Irish companies.

We have set a target of 33% female representation on boards of ISEQ 20 companies by 2023 and 25% for other listed companies. We have also set a target of no all-male boards by the end of 2019.

We have set realistic and achievable milestones as follows:

Brid Horan Co-Chair

“We must significantly increase the number of women in senior leadership roles in Ireland in order to benefit business and the Irish economy. Progress has been made but we need to continue to drive change by placing gender balance at the centre of the agenda for boards in Ireland.”

Gary Kennedy Co-Chair

“There are still a significant number of Irish companies that have only one woman on their board. We are calling for an end to tokenism and encouraging businesses to address real change on their boards. This has to start with an urgent move to address listed companies in Ireland with no females on the board.”
