European Commission Calls for Gender Balance on Corporate Boards

Just 1 in 7 board members at Europe’s top companies is a woman, and the battle for gender balance on corporate boards continues. In a new video, the European Commission asks, “Do we want to wait another 40 years to reach a fair gender balance?”

You can press the play button in the video player below to watch the video, which is very clever. Be warned, it doesn’t start to get good until about 30-seconds in, but it’s worth the wait. The visual that happens at that point is very effective. See for yourself. Do you think this type of video will help call attention to the gender gap on corporate boards? Leave a comment after you watch it, and share your thoughts.
