Among executives running the top 100 companies on the London Stock Exchange, there are more men named Dave or Steve than there are women in total. Clearly, parity is still a dream in development in the U.K. and Europe. Britain has called for companies on the index to fill a third of their board seats with women by 2020. What are the chances that disparity will be solved in our lifetimes? What are the most promising avenues for achieving it, and what impediments stand in the way?
The Milken Insititute hosted a panel session on December 5th, 2018 to discuss these issues.
