We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming event FutureBoards Cross-Border Dialogue- Gender Balance On Corporate Boards, 18 June in Shanghai. The event is co-hosted by Norwegian Consulate General in Shanghai, Norwegian Business Association China and FutureBoards Norway.

There is a growing, universal acceptance that both men and women should contribute to corporate governance – in line with the growing body of research confirming that more balanced boards make more balanced decisions. Therefore, the discussion is increasingly moving from WHY women should be board directors, to HOW to achieve a reasonable gender balance. We believe this event will be a step in the right direction.

With a selected group of participants from Norwegian and Chinese business owners, board chairs & members, corporate CEOs, representatives from government, relevant organizations, and potential female board member candidates, we will take a closer and comparative look at the state of play in the two countries. The event will have three sessions with the perspectives from researchers, investors, and companies. The guest speakers will exchange thoughts, views and ideas on concrete actions that have been taken in the two countries proven to be effective and/or ineffective. The event will also look at what is the role of the investors and boards, and how can they, and how should they contribute to help remove invisible/intangible barriers to recruiting more women in decision-making positions.

Date & Time: 18th June / 18:00 – 19:40
