Kering receives the most feminine board of directors award
On Wednesday 28 November 2018, European Women on Boards (EWoB) and Ethics & Boards have awarded Kering the prize of The Most Feminine Board of Directors Award.
Kering, which has made gender equality a corporate priority, is proud to receive this award which illustrates a long-standing commitment.
The comparative ranking analyses the 200 largest companies of the Stoxx Europe 600, through three main criteria:
- The percentage of women on Boards ;
- The presence of a woman serving as Chair of the Board ;
- The presence of women serving as Chief Executive Officer or Chair of the Executive Board.
Since the launch of its Leadership and Diversity program in 2010, one of Kering's main goals is to increase women's access to leadership positions and ensure equal opportunities throughout their career. The objective of the Group is to achieve gender parity and gender pay equality at every level by 2025. Today, women represent 56% of the Group's managers, 33% of the Executive Committee and 64% of the Board of Directors, making Kering one of the most feminized companies of the CAC40.
