|In light of recent laws and so-called “pink quotas” to increase the number of women serving on European boards, many European boards are increasingly looking to American female business leaders to fill seats.|
A recent Wall Street Journal article by Joann S. Lublin reports that European boards are pursuing American businesswomen “partly because the U.S. has a larger pool of senior executive women.”
To recap the recent mandates requiring more women on European boards:
In the Wall Street Journal article, Lublin cites seven American businesswomen appointed to European boards this year, including Françoise Brougher at Sodexo SA (Paris). Other American businesswomen have landed board seats this year at Anglo American PLC, Fiat SpA and Nokia Corp.
