Representing Women in the Boardroom & Throughout the Private Sector

Posted on the 12 May 2011 by Center For International Private Enterprise @CIPEglobal

Representing women in the boardroom & throughout the private sectorEach day I peruse the web sites of between eight and 12 news organizations – ranging from my hometown newspaper to ABC News to the Financial Times.  Today, a link on the Financial Times’ “Women at the Top” page caught my eye – a five-minute video entitled “French lessons on women in the boardroom” which discusses the abysmal track record of European companies in increasing the percentage of women on corporate boards.

CIPE’s work on engaging women ranges from entrepreneurship education in Afghanistan with equal participation for girls to training programs for women’s business associations in Pakistan.  If it’s so difficult to integrate women into business in developed economies, imagine how difficult it is for women in societies where cultural and societal barriers inhibit engagement for these vital members of the business community.

CIPE will focus these issues and more at the upcoming global conference Democracy that Delivers for Women on June 20-21 here in Washington, DC. Please visit to register and participate in this important dialogue.
