Webinar on 'Women on Boards' for International Women's Day hosted by the European Parliament Liaison Office in Ireland and the European Commission Representation in Ireland.
- gender equality
- Representation in Ireland
Having both women and men represented at the top table is crucial to successful leadership. Today, there are still far too few women in senior positions including on boards.
This event will discuss the importance of equality and inclusion in the boardroom and the need to push the agenda for greater gender balance in Ireland and at EU level – it’s time to level up!
The event will consist of a panel discussion followed by a Q&A.
Speakers will include:
- Frances Fitzgerald MEP
- Aongus Hegarty – President, International Markets, Dell Technologies & Co-Chair of the Balance for Better Business Review Group
- Margaret E. Ward - CEO, Clear Ink Ltd
- Barbara Nolan - Head of the European Commission Representation in Ireland
The event will be moderated by Sarah Collins, Irish Independent.
During this live online event, participants can submit their questions via the chat function.
