How Denmark plans to get more women in leading jobs

There are too few women in leading roles at Danish companies, Minister for Gender Equality Eva Kjer Hansen has said. In partnership with Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and seven different recruitment firms, Hansen has announced a new ‘codex’ which she believes will have a positive impact on the issue. “I can see that it is taking too long and that we are not making enough progress in regard to getting enough women at this level. And that is unfortunate, because it means we are not using the full talent potential of Danish society,” the minister said. According to Hansen’s ministry, just under 15 percent of directors and 19 percent of board members at Danish companies are women. The codex developed by the ministry, CBS and recruitment firms includes eight principles which the participating recruitment agencies will be obliged to follow. This will mean a minimum of 33 percent of candidates put forward by the agencies for their customers will be women.
