Business Rocks Breakfast Sessions: Are Swedish Companies Really On Board With Equality?

Randy Gosda

Today, men outnumber women by a margin of nearly nine to one on the nominating committees for the board of directors of the 59 major Swedish companies listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange's Large Cap List.

On August 25, at the Hard Rock Cafe in Stockholm, Margareta Neld and Amanda Evans discussed this issue, and ways that Swedish companies can consider to add more equal representation on their boards.

Margareta, the founder and owner of Neld International Consulting and CEO of Women in Progress, explained to the more than two dozen attendees that the gender inequality on large Swedish boards of directors is reflected on the majority of companies of all sizes in the country.

Amanda Evans, the General Manager for POC, a Swedish bicycle and ski helmet maker, described her own journey as a business executive - from her determined approach to being hired by POC - to her recent appointment to the AmCham Sweden Board of Directors.
