Mehr Frauen in Spitzengremien großer Unternehmen, Dynamik aber verhalten – Gesetzliche Vorgabe könnte Schwung bringen

Die Frauenanteile in den Spitzengremien großer Unternehmen in Deutschland sind im vergangenen Jahr weiter gestiegen.

Number of Women on Boards of Large Firms Increasing Slowly; Legal Requirements Could Provide Momentum
