I want to dedicate a special newsletter to Norway’s first outcome of the 40% quotas law. A few days ago I had the chance to take part in The international Board Impact Conference in Oslo. This conference brought together board members, executives, investors and researchers to discuss and learn from the experiences of Norwegian corporate boards of directors, which now have more than 40% of females on their boards. The aim was for the conference to serve as a vehicle to help the broader international community to continue shaping global boardroom diversity in the future. The conference was organised by Elin Hurvenes.
Elin Hurvenes, Founder of the Professional Boards Forum
Elin Hurvenes founded the Professional Boards Forum in 2003 in response to the Norwegian “Quota Law” requiring company boards to have at least 40% women directors. The Professional Boards Forum brings together chairmen and experienced business women with a view to expand networks and raise the visibility of women board candidates.
