Breakfast seminar/webinar: Unlocking Diversity Opportunities in Norwegian Boards
Get ready for the forthcoming quota law and join NVCA for a seminar on fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion within Norwegian boards.
Starting on January 1, 2024, Norwegian companies could face a legal obligation to ensure gender balance within their boards. This would require the appointment of nearly 13,000 new board members by 2028. However, it’s not just about gender; it’s an opportunity to create boards that are more diverse. What are the advantages of a diverse board, and how can your company make the most of this opportunity? What factors should you consider when selecting new board members, and how can you avoid the «quota» label on the new members?
Date: November 7th
Time: 08:30-09:30 AM (Breakfast from 08:00)
Location: Wiersholm, Dokkveien 1
- Anne Lise E. Gryte – Partner at Wiersholm, will provide an introduction to the board quota law and share insights from Styrelisten.
