On 15 September 2015, the Belgian Institute for Equality of Women and Men hosted the Gender Balance Power Map workshops. On this occasion, the participants shared existing solutions and drafted recommendations to support women’s access to decision-making positions in both social and conventional enterprises.

In Belgium, women only represent 22% of the board members of large listed companies (Belgium) and 36% of the board members of non-profit associations (Wallonia). In response to this vertical segregation, the participants urged for further information, training and sensitization. They also called for new corporate cultures that redefine the managers’ role and better embed the diversity plans within the strategy of the company.

Event organized with the support of the Institute of Equality between Women and Men.
