Increasing the number of women Non-Executive Directors on Dutch, German and Swiss boards

The Professional Boards Forum was set up by Norwegian Entrepreneur Elin Hurvenes following the controversial quota legislation for women on boards in Norway in 2002.

The innovative Forum events give leading chairmen instant access to excellent NED talent and gives women an opportunity to demonstrate their strengths, experience and judgement in a "Simulated Board Meeting".

We'd like to hear from you if you are:

  • A chairman or board member interested in meeting highly qualified women NED candidates.
  • An outstanding woman Non-Executive Director or potential NED with the skills and experience for challenging board roles or someone who would like to recommend a candidate.
  • A GHRD, Head of Talent, Diversity and Inclusion keen to help your senior women get NED roles.

Please contact Elin Hurvenes
  With the new call for gender parity on EU boards the Professional Boards Forum is playing a practical role in increasing the number of women in the boardroom.
