Progress towards gender equality in business leadership roles is much too slow, so what measures are needed to get more women into senior roles and achieve a better gender balance in companies’ boards and management teams? Sylvie Durrer, Director of the Swiss Federal Office for Gender Equality, Magali Anderson, Chief Sustainability and Innovation Officer at Holcim, Jos Dijsselhof, CEO of SIX Group and David Bach, IMD Dean of Innovation and Programs, explore ways of overcoming some of the obstacles to faster progress in this IMD/SIX webinar. They conclude that a combination of carrot and stick is needed and that progress will continue to be too slow unless businesses are forced to take action by governments. A change in corporate culture and the style of business leadership is also required, they say.
