State of Play: European Board Diversity Report

Diversity is still a hot topic. Legislative bodies are addressing concerns from investors as they realize the importance of having a balanced board in terms of gender, age, skills and expertise, for better decision-making.

Providing companies and investors with valuable insights about board composition and potential red flags to mitigate corporate governance risk in 2020, CGLytics has released its first diversity report based on the European market.

● How gender diversity is included in country governance codes
